What a nice site!

I was reading about martial arts and came across this site and thought, why not?
I signed up and here's my introduction!
i'm 35 years old, single (again), and Buddhist.
I'm a 4th dan judo master who got his training in Japan.
I've been exposed to Japanese culture since i was a child, my father was a diplomat there, but i have lived all around the world, i feel lucky for that!

Right now i am living in the Netherlands (i am originally dutch, but consider myself an ' inverted banana: white on the outside, yellow on the inside! ;-)
and i'm setting up my dojo in the northern region of the country.

I'm looking forward to get to know fellow practisioners and i am willing to give advice! (for free ofcourse!)

Best regards,

Willem.

I was in the RAF posted to Germany for three years but being 5 miles from the Dutch border at Venlo, spent most of my time there as I wasn't a huge fan of the area we were in. The best thing is definitely the people! We spent a lot of time camping around the country, Arnhem and Venlo were favourite shopping places too. I feel very much at home in Holland and although I haven't been there for a while miss it. My very little Dutch was learnt from reading the sub titles on Dutch television plus watching a lot of Dutch childrens programmes like Sesame Straat lol.

So, i hope there are some judo players on this site!

Judo is my main art, though i have also done kendo and shinkendo, but i'm by no means an expert in those styles.

What arts are you guys doing?
