Hey folks, how are you? I'm Clint Franklin (one of many) from down-South Louisiana. I just signed up here, and am looking forward to learning a martial art. I've always been interested in martial arts, as well as sword fighting and general tactics and strategy. But, I'm really a "gentle giant," as I'm 6'5" and very hefty, as well as rather ponderous and passive. I'm looking into martial arts as a general boost to quality of life - learning self-defense, discipline, determination, and becoming fit. I'll be around, probably asking for lots of advice from those who have begun their journey down that path. I just wanted to say hello, and I look forward to meeting a lot of good people here!
