Hi everyone,
Thought I should briefly introduce myself. My name is Mike. I have a 3rd Dan in (traditional) Tae Kwon Do. I also have a 1st Dan in Hapkido and a 6th kyu in Budo Taijutsu (ninjutsu). I have several titles in the health and fitness industry. I am a certified Master Personal Trainer, Sports Hypnotist and Sports Nutritionist among others. I use to belong to a martial art forum a few years ago. I quickly left because it was overrun with "my discipline is better than yours" people. It was not a friendly environment. I'm hoping this place is different. Best regards

Welcome to Martial Talk. Some of that negative stuff is unavoidable, but I think you'll find that most people here aren't all that caught up in it. Besides, we all know that BJJ is the best art. j/k :D

Hi Tengu
I'm pretty new here myself and haven't come across any ego issues at all. It's a pretty cool place. Welcome:)

Welcome Tengu, The my art is better than your art stuff is frowned upon here. It is very friendly and respectful. Looking forward to reading your contributions. :)

Hello and welcome to MartialTalk ... although you will occasionally find the types of comparison posts, most seem to remain friendly here ... enjoy!
