Hello from Louisiana!
I'm a complete newbie in the world of martial arts. I just started training BJJ about 4 months ago under Tim Credeur and Bullshido's own "Coach Josh". I doubt I'll have much of anything to contribute outside of Newbietown, but at least I registered and got this post out of the way so I can continue lurking without being nagged.
P.S. Rage faces instead of smileys? I think I'm in love with this place already!
Your effort to avoid nagging will only be succesful if you keep posting. If you don't post for a while (I think it's a week? maybe two) you'll get an equally annoying banner telling you to do so. I'm pretty sure, though I haven't seen proof of that in this new format.
Chaos? Panic?... Disorder??
.........................My work here is done.
Welcome to Bullshido!
I've been the the land of swamp people and Cajuns many a time, even having the pleasure of training with the Cajun Swampthing (Coach Josh as you might know him) before. Hope your training goes well there!
