    Hello Everyone!

    My name is Art Mason, and I am a "lifetime" (adult lifetime) martial artist from Windsor Ontario Canada who moved with one of his sons almost 2 years ago to Brasov Romania. I was first in Romania in 2010 teaching a seminar and fell in love with the country (a woman too).

    I began my martial arts training in Hapkido in November 1984 and have never looked back since. I was employed at Chrysler Canada but left to run a school in Windsor full time. I stll have a school there run by my senior black belts, and one here in Brasov.

    That is the short story long!

    Thanks for reading!

    Very cool! I always loved Detroit oddly enough. I remember going to Hudson as a kid with my mom. But I am happy to be here in my sleepy little mountain town.

    Hello, Mate!
    It's good seeing other people from Romania on the forum. Brasov is a great city. Hope you enjoy it, and yes it is kinda "medieval".

    I love the city. People are great also. Won't call this my retirement because I am far from retired. But I am not planning on returning to the west.
