Hello, all! My name is Rob, but you can call me Tekiatsu, or the Cyclone. I am known as this because my sensei says that, during a fight, I become as the wind. He's never really elaborated too much on that, but that's what I got. My sempai, however, compares me to a wet noodle, in that I am extremely flexible and can be bent to angles and degrees where most people would have been broken. Honestly speaking, I am 15 years old, but I really do love Martial Arts. Since I was young, that has been my passion. I have been training in Bujinkan Ninjutsu since I was 13 years old under Shihan Jason Hardy, the youngest student ever to train under him since he himself trained. Aside from Ninjutsu, I also trained in Jiu-Jitsu but, and this is in no means a shot at Jiu-jitsu, but I simply found the art empty for me. It was too competitive for me, too sport oriented. I realize that many people prefer this to reality-based fighting styles, but non-competitive martial arts are my preference, so I left jiu-jitsu and did some solo training until I found Ninjutsu a year later. I am currently an 8th kyu and plan to open my own dojo in the near future. I really love that I finally found a place where I can discuss my views on the arts, and the views of others, especially those more experienced than I.
