    What's your name mean --- :confused: Well, "Robyn" means 'shining fame' although my middle name means 'battle maiden' and that might be more appropriate. If you're asking what my user name means then it's at the very beginning of this thread. http://www.martialtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6238

    Where are you from--- Louisiana. That's all I'll say. I don't want to be stalked![​IMG]

    What discipline are you training in--- A Yoshikan/Aikikai mix style of Aikido

    What you like to do other than Martial Arts--- spend time thinking about Martial Arts and looking on Martial Talk, play video games, read, play with my kittens, exercise, watch anime [​IMG] ,etc.

    Add whatever else you would like--- I would like a medium pepperoni pizza, please! [​IMG] Some Rocky Road sounds pretty good to me too! [​IMG] Hmm...I own 2 pug dogs, 4 cats, and many fish.

    Age, rank Serial number--- I'm 21, Aikido rank-4th kyu and I don't know my own serial number. ;)

    An arnisador is a practitioner of arnis. When I signed on, early on, it seemed a good way to indicate what art I study. Of course, now we have a bunch of arnisadors and eskrimadors here!

    I am from upstate NY but work and live in Nowhere, Indiana, where I'm a college math. professor. I'm pushing hard on 40 years (next month) but don't look a day over 39.

    I teach Modern Arnis and study JKD and BJJ. Between family, work, and martial arts--including MartialTalk!--I haven't time for much else. When time permits I like to walk in the woods behind the house, read, and my wife and I enjoy the theatre.

    Name?

    Hi- my name is Shodan on here, Tara in life. Shodan is just the name I picked cuz it is also my rank (1st degree black belt). My given name, Tara, means "Tower". My parents chose it from the movie Gone With the Wind- the plantation was named Tara. I am also part Irish and there is a hill in Ireland where the Kings used to get crowned named Tara.

    Where am I from?

    I was born and raised in Northern California- a little town called Red Bluff. I now live down south of there near Sacramento. I wish I could move back up north again- it is too crazy, populated and polluted down here for my liking!!

    What discipline are you training in?

    Well, in life, I am training in self-discipline!! Just trying to be the best person I can. I am a Christian who tries to walk the walk. In martial arts, I train in Kenpo. I have been studying Kenpo since I was 13 (am now 30) and still love it a lot. I am displaced from my studio somewhat, but still make the effort to train on my own as well as go to my home studio once per month. I also have studied and enjoy practicing Modern Arnis.

    What do I like to do other than Martial Arts?

    My favorite place to be is at the ocean. I love to beachcomb, look in tidepools, boogie board. I don't get there as much as I like, but when I am there, I am in my element!! Otherwise, I enjoy spending time with my hubby and our 19 month old son and other family members (my Mom, Dad, older brother). Playing with our 2 cats and dog, camping, swimming, kayaking, hiking, snow skiing, pretty much anything in the great outdoors.

    Add whatever else you would like?

    Uh.....well......it's been great being on this site so far and seeing how many others there are out there that enjoy Kenpo and so many other arts as well. Thanks for the opportunity to share!!

    My real name or Satan's Barber? Actually, I wonder what my name /does/ mean...!

    From Google:

    The meaning of Ian
    Origin: Hebrew
    Meaning: Gift from God.

    Ugh! I'm a complete heathen, so that's actually quite annoying!

    What does Satan's Barber mean? Well! Lots of people ask me that actually. That's an on-line handle, and I've held it for a long long time now. It's nothing to do with religion WHATSOEVER, although it has offended a lot of religiously biased people in the past, whoch I find slightly ammusing as I find religion so ridiculous.

    The name is based on the character of Sweeny Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, from the musical 'Sweeny Todd' by Stephen Sondheim. I own the URL satansbarber.co.uk (although I also bought ianatkinson.net so I could put a sane e-mail address on my CV).

    Garforth, which is in East Leeds, in West Yorkshire, in the North of England

    http://www.specialtytoursltd.com/images/yorkshire.jpg

    Kempo Ryu Karate Kickboxing, a derrivative of Ed Parker's American Kenpo.

    There's a life outside the Martial Arts!? ;)

    I like going down the pub, although I don't drink excessively, and while I'm there I tend to talk about MA. Then we talk about MA on the way home, and often pracice techniques a bit drunk late at night. Hmm, that doesn't count then does it...!

    I do all sorts to do with computers - games, programming, media etc.

    I spend a great deal of time in the cinema, usually soaking up Sci-Fi when I can get my hands on it. If I'm not in there, I might be watching telly at home :)

    Oh, I play guitar too.

    I've never seen single gloucester cheese for sale.

    21, 1st Kyu Brown Belt (though maybe not for long...) and, um, I can't find my serial number!

    Ian.

    Hm, name meaning...
    In real-life, my full name is Abigail Leigh Coates, but I prefer Abbey. So far as I know, Abigail means "father of joy," even though I'm a girl. Hm. Leigh, I don't know. Coates is just one of those run-of-the-mill English names that can lead to a lot of teasing.
    ...and if anyone is hoping to nail me with and Abbey Normal, Technopunk beat you all! :p

    Online, I'm frequently known as Rusty. This is NOT from my hair color, though it is red/brown/blonde/black (blonde and black streaks that need to be re-done). It's actually from my favorite bird of prey, the red-tailed hawk, which has rust-colored feathers. When I got started in '98, I was rust_feather, but the online RPG-ers got sick of the underscore and dubbed me Rusty.
    I also run around as Zephyr and/or Keiko. I answer to any of the names.


    Where am I from. Good question! Originally, I'm from Elkton, Maryland, in the US. It's easy to find. On a map of Maryland, plop yer finger down on the corner closest to Delaware. Just off the line for I-95, you should see Elkton. I'm, like, 5 minutes from the state line. My secondary home is here at school. When at college, I reside in the dorm halls of Shepherd College, in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. Third home is my mom's place in Wilmington, Delaware. My dad is the one who lives in Elkton. Fourth "home" is my ex-boyfriend's house in Herndon, Virginia.


    Discipline? Ed Parker's American Kenpo.


    Other than Martial Arts, I enjoy writing creatively, hanging out with friends, listening to music, chilling, etc. Being a lazy bum, in other words. lol.


    Anything else. Hm. Whoever I end up living with better like birds! LOL. I love them. Guinea Pigs, too. My family used to breed the lil squealers. Other things...hm, when poked, I squeak -- really high-pitched. I can do an almost perfect seagull call (good story from Boston involving that! :p) I'm also decent with the guinea pig squeak, and sheep/goat noises. I'm an oddball :shrug:
    I'm a colorgaurd girl. It's kinda like playing with a weighted bo staff that has a hunk of fabric on one end and is tossable. :-D I love colorgaurd and marching band, in general.
    I have studied Kenpo before, however, it was a mix of EPAK, Tracy, and Chinese. It was at a school in Delaware, run by Jim and Judy Clapp. That was from '92-'96, and I achieved the lowest rank in the brown series (third for that school).
    I'm also currently single *grin*


    Age: 18 (gonna be 19 on November 17th!)
    Rank: Yellow belt
    Serial Number: sorry, I can't see the back of my neck that well :rolleyes:


    Incase anyone wants to see a picture of me (well, one from fall 2001, my senior year in hs) go here:
    http://www.geocities.com/rust_feather/author.html
    (its been called the "goddess" pic cuz of the pattern behind my head makes me look "holy" according to a few peeps back in school)

    My screen name is from our new web site that we recently launched! My real name means "free man".
    At our school we teach kenpo, modern arnis, aikido, and okinawan weapons.
    We also promote seminars and do town programs working with the community.
    while family comes first, martial arts takes up the rest of the time!
