    Hey all,

    I joined here because I really wanted a cool online martial arts community to be a part of. As soon as I found this forum I was so happy that it had a generally happy and friendly atmosphere :) Much better than other sites where its just all flaming and unhelpful posts lol

    My training has mainly been in Zen Do Kai karate (offshoot of Goju) and in Muay thai.

    I've already received some awesome advice and am keen to help out where I can

    my username is supposed to sound like jean claude van damme but i think i failed

    stay safe and see you all around :)

    The user name worked - I noticed it immediately.

    As for the cool place to discuss MA, you've failed. We are far more geeky than cool here. Most of the folks here think they are the exception to that - I know I certainly am - but the more certain they are of their coolness, the more their nerdiness comes through.

    But we do have a lot of fun, even if we do snort when we laugh.

    Welcome I thought the same thing until I read this page than I understood all the weird answers I was getting. If you start a serious post tag me I'm down. Although I am more kung-fu than karate it would be pretty neat to compare.
