    Hello all, the name would actually be Bob. I'm new to MartialTalk. I have taken a bit of time to read a few threads, but I'm just getting started. I originally came online to see what people knew about the Villari/USSD split and I'm quite sure there is a lot of knowledge out there.

    I am of the split era, having trained now with both styles. I was with the Villari system, or at least a teacher of his proclaimed art, from 1985-92, not too sure what all went on from 1988-92, only knew what I was told from a one-sided point of view, attaining Nidan. After taking several years away from the arts, I am now with USSD and yes, I've seen all the negativity, but I can assure you I have a good instructor and have had mostly good experiences. It's not a money thing with me. It's not a who's who with me. It's not a who did what with me. It's a where am I and what are my needs. I'm in a good place and my needs met being met. That is what matters.

    That's it for now, type at you all again soon ... Bob
