NYS? New York Sitty?

Upstate NY, near Albany... I keep coming across the same guy too..... every now and then he pops up someplace in the area.
He may be "a type" ...if you know what I mean. Although I was joking with the previous"Texas" reference, I actually do know a martial arts/firearms/security instructor there who could fit the same description. Extreme enough to be a little scary.

I also know some really great people (including my cousins) who live there, so nothing against the state as a whole! :)

I went to my first proper Wing Chun lesson last night. An excellent teacher with whom I got on very well (despite him revealing that hes a flat earther ) A nice albeit crumbling and cold gym in a converted chapel with lots of equipment/weapons. However, its quite expensive to join (from what Im used to) and has limited training sessions that will potentially interfere with my other training I have some thinking to do
Did you ever go back for another lesson?

No worries, they come in all shapes and sizes and in all states of the union. ;)

I didnt. The flat-earth thing, the considerable expense and the awkwardness of the timetable for me, has put me off.

Instead, Ive found and joined a Zen/Chan meditation group and met some very nice and sensible people!

No flat or hollow earthers?
