    Hello from North Carolina! There are not many serious martial artists out here in my area, so I've sought out a place to talk about it with actual practitioners. I look forward to exchanging ideas!

    Welcome to MT! What part of NC are you in? I know there are at least three of us here from NC. My wife and I are in Western NC (south of Asheville), and we have at least one out near Raleigh.

    What is your background?

    Hello Everyone!

    I currently live in Durham, where I run my dad's restaurant. I learned Nanquan-Beitui military combatives from my dad when I was a kid, and just ran with it. I study as much about the martial arts as I can, though nowadays practice is becoming more infrequent with work and such. My primary styles are Baji Quan, Baihe Quan, and Shuai Jiao, though I try to learn something from everything I encounter. I taught self-defense in college based on those styles, incorporated in my own personal method.

    A very different background from my own experience. I look forward to your contributions in the forums.

    My primary art is Nihon Goshin Aikido (a cousin-art to Ueshiba's Aikido). I also have some background in Shotokan Karate and Judo, significant cross-training in a blend of Filipino martial arts and (generically) Jujutsu. And I've done some cross-training and tinkering in a smattering of other stuff - bits of Brazilian Jiu Jutsu, Tang Soo Do, etc. Everything I learn changes my approach in tiny ways, but the core remains NGA (at least, my interpretation of NGA).
