    Newbie intro

    Hello all. I've been to this site a number of times in the name of research and I have found it to be a wealth of knowledge. So, I decided to join.

    About myself, I was born and raised in southern California, joined the Navy for several years and got out where I was stationed in Maryland. I took a job working in an ER in Baltimore for a bit, then became a Deputy Sheriff in Maryland.

    When I went through the Police Academy in Baltimore County, they brought in a Krav Maga instructor to train us. After Academy graduation, I did nothing in relation to martial arts for several years.

    My Agency did not provide additional hands on Defensive tactics training, so I started searching for a MA school near me and found one about a year and a half ago. (I'll do a review shortly.)

    I'll be moving back to Southern California in a few weeks (which prompted me to come on his site most recently to help find a new school).

    patfromlogan: thanks for the welcome.

    Omega Supreme: The San Gabriel Valley, just outside of Los Angeles, specifically, Pasadena. In the Navy, I was a Hospital Corpsman.

    I know a few schools in that area, if you want to do some minor travelling the Inasanto Academy is just on the other side of LA. I also have a good acquaintance in that area so let me know. (This is assuming you want to stick with your current style of training).

    Omega Supreme, I would love to stick with the PTK. I've looked at the Inosanto Academy but, between price and distance, I'll have to hold of on it for now. But, if you know any PTK or FMA instructors in that area, I would love a push in the right direction. Beside Nick Papadakis, my results on searches have been limited.

    I've got one of Vunak's guys teaching in the area. He just did a clinic at my facility.
