    Where are you from: Hmm. Well, I was born in Belgium, my mother's German, my father's Turkish and I've lived in England since I was three months old. So take your pick. ;)

    What discipline are you training in: BJJ, since Nov 06, having done a bunch of other stuff before.

    What you like to do other than Martial Arts: I'm doing a part-time PhD in English Lit, so poetry takes up a fair bit of my time. Aside from that, I enjoy history, music, art and travel (which is probably my biggest expense over the years, although the BJJ isn't exactly cheap :p).

    What does your name mean?
    Well, my name was given as a nickname by a close friend. Since my first name is Samantha and I go by Sam; a cartoon he use to watch had a dog on it named Sambone so it kinda stuck.:uhyeah:

    Where are you from?
    I am from a fairly small town in Wyoming.:uhyeah:

    What discipline do you study?
    This is kind of a hard question. I practice a few different ones. Some more than others though. Tae Kwon Do is my primary focus and probably always will be. I am also learning Hapkido and am a few belts from Black in that one as well. I study Judo occasionally, mainly cause there are no hapkido tournaments around here. And I study a bit of Jujitsu and boxing as well. My art is call Kyuki-do which tends to incorporate a lot of these arts all together.

    What do you like to do other than Martial Arts?
    You name it and, well depending on how risky, life threatening or not, I'll try it. I like a good adrenaline rush but I also like to be carefull. I love to write, go outdoors, horseback ride, bike, hang out and have a good time.

    Age, Rank, etc.
    I am 23 years old, close to getting my bachelor's degree in communications, I hope to one day become a master in the Kyuki-do federation and run my own school.
