    Hey everyone.
    I accidentally posted this in another section. Oops.
    Hi! I'm Shawn and I live in central Florida.
    I train in Shorin-ryu Karate USA (same style as Matsubayashi Ryu). 11 years now.
    Happy to be here.

    Welcome to MT, Shawn!

    You'll find a diverse group here. Some relatively new to martial arts, some with way too many years in MA (compared to me, anyway, and I'm obviously the gold standard). We bicker and debate a lot, make jokes, and talk about food. Sometimes we even discuss martial arts.

    Attended my first Shorin Ryu class tonight. I loved it. Made me realize how out of shape I am. Think I'm going to keep going back and learn this art.

    Awesome! Keep at it, man. It's a very rewarding journey.
    I started training on Shorin-Ryu USA back in 2007 and it's become a very major part of my life.
