    In okinawa

    I am stationed in Okinawa, as a US Marine, I have studied martial arts for 18 years...and love every minute of it.

    I started in my home town of Booneville, Arkansas...and have been with the same instructor the whole time.

    Awesome. Okinawa is a cool place to be. Which base? I was at Camp Schwab for six months in the mid 90s.

    Welcome to Bullshido. Thank you for your service to this great nation.

    I thought I spelled it wrong, but as I said I'm a mechanic not an English professor.

    Are you doing a whole enlistment there? If not, how long is your deployment?

    Do Marines still hang out in Kinville, outside Camp Hansen?

    I am on leave right now, I take a morning walk with the wifey...then practice kata and my techniques ( I am getting ready for my nidan test)... Then before I pick up the kids from the bus, I swing a kettlebell...I would say that I pt sufficiently for a man who just got back from Afghanistan.
