CircusNinja says hi
I have read many articles and threads here and finally decided that I wanted to join in the fray. I have trained in a variety of styles, and am currently training under Bud Carlson Hanshi, in Newark Ohio.
Reading the FAQs, and various rules/advisories, I figured it would be best to behave myself and introduce myself here in Newbietown.
I am an amputee, my right hand was crushed in a car accident, as a result, I can only count to 9 1/2 without taking off a shoe.
Anyway, I look forward to being here, and I am glad this site exists.
Welcome to Bullshido.

I still use the right hand. It is not 100%, probably not even 75% but I am able to use it for punches and stuff, but it has caused me to shy away from Jujutsu.
I do have a couple special gloves for my hand, and a few finger puppets for my stump. It is a LOT of fun to mess with people... many amputees have a sick sense of humor and thick skin.
Anyway, glad to be here.
