      Hey, seems like I can't post on the forum.
      I wonder if my computer is stupid, or something else is off.
      I cleared the cache....deleted cookies....nothing.

      I owe you an apology, as I was quite rude and disrespectful in my previous post/replies.
      I see that you were only trying to help, as I was clearly confused.
      I will state that if I hadn't argued, then I wouldn't get any real answers and justifications for those answers. It's important that I get all of the correct information, or truly, I won't be learning anything.

      Again, I give you my apology and my utmost respect.

      You have all helped tremendously, and I am now happy to say that I have found my "nitch".

      Thank you sincerelly.

      Best Regards,
      Aries Kai

      PS: Merry Christmas & have a Happy New Year!!!

      Thanks for posting that reading list on the Machida Karate thread! I've read a couple of them already, but it'll be nice to hit the library when it re-opens on Saturday. :-)

      Respects Sir. i noticed your post and i agree there have been changes in the ABA over many years. I am a long time student of Dr. Pat Finley (6th Lvl BB ABA) and Prof Jon Collins (Former ABA President) All of my Bando has been kind of finger printed so to speak as Bando was taught almost 30 years ago to Jon & Pat. When i trained w/ Jon, Ron Meekins (RIP) was never far away keeping an eye on who Jon was teaching what. lol. Honestly i prefer the way Jon teaches, but some in the ABA have been unwelcoming to me, so be it, it is the nature of being a student of these two men. I just wanted to offer my respects for your opinion is more level headed than some I have seen in the ABA. Train well and stay safe sir. Jim Linkins

      Stay Safe.
