      Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and looking forward to posting and reading others comments. I guess I consider myself a bit of an old boy in martial arts having been involved on and off for over 42 years. But that has been mainly in Japanese jujutsu and Bujinkan ninjutsu. But have tried lots of different styles over the years to broaden my experiences.

    Occupation:
    Uni lecturer
    Introduced to martial arts at age 5. Began training at around 10 in Tsutsumi Ryu Jujutsu and later Pencak Silat. Have also done Krav Maga, Systema, Kali, BJJ and Boxing for varying lengths of time. Even tried a little bit of Wing Chun Kung Fu over the years.
    Started Bujinkan( Togakure Ryu) in the early 1980s under Steve Revnak in Perth. Some of my training mates included: Drew Netes, Andrew and Stuart Jarvis, Vince Brown, James McCloy and Peter Seabird. Plus others including a pretty dark haired girl. But my memory of names is getting fuzzy. Also trained with Greg Hinks and Darryl Tedesco in the early 1990s in Perth. Had to take lots of breaks due to injuries and working abroad. Started looking around for a school a couple of years ago and almost joined with Chris West in Perth, which would have been good, but by chance found Drew Netes and Steve Revnak teaching at Drew's dojo in Perth and joined them. Feels like I am home again after a long trip away.
