    Missed this until the necro. Pretty gutsy post there Mark. I'm sorry to hear all the hard luck you've had but I wouldn't patronize you with any pity for a second. You probably have it worse than I do. But you've still achieved more & earned more respect in your chosen arena than I ever will. You get nothing but respect here, bro.

    Gutsy would be telling everyone I currently work at Wal-Mart collecting shopping carts from 10 pm to 7 am....

    ...but even I am not gutsy enough to tell that one.

    Yes, its true.

    I wonder if they are aware of Matt's issues. Do you know what happened with his father's dojang, or association for that matter?

    Honest work, and there's nothing wrong with it. You have all my respect and more for what you've disclosed in this thread and, for the efforts you've gone too to help a fellow Judoka and human being.

    I only hope that if needed, I'd have someone like you around. I also prey you've had someone able to assist you.

    Respect.

    We got a saying in French, "il n'y a point de sot métier". Translating more or less as "there's no bad/stupid line of (legal) work".

    Everyone, in any field, no matter how small or silly it may seem, is needed. As for now, don't worry too much about it, sir, you'll get what you deserve one day.

    I wish you a training place full of happy students for the next holiday where wishes are not out of place!

    Still got me beat. I'm an unemployment statistic. No decent person would judge your character by your income bracket.

    MA exellence doesn't promise much in the way of financial rewards & folks know that going in. Good thing too. If it did we'd have 100 times as many Dillmans & La Tourettes out there.

    You have no idea the level of insult I have to endure when "working the door."

    But, it is what it is....
