    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Years of Lurking, just wanted to say thanks.

    I've been in and out of here on a regular basis for years, generally catching up on several months of threads in an afternoon and staying gone for a while. I really don't have time to check the site on a regular basis to respond to replies, so I've tried to keep myself out of the way. Any questions I've had have usually been answered by a search, so I've not needed to post those either.

    I wanted to say thanks for the wealth of general info and humor compiled here. I've enjoyed it for years, and hope to always find you here when I have a question about MA or fitness.

    I've been a brown belt in Wado Ryu karate, assistant to a sensei who unashamedly trained youths for sport karate. I've goofed around with backyard fight clubs and heavy bags in the garage. I've gotten fat (real fat) and reduced myself to tubby by utilizing a little common sense. I've been throwing iron around with friends, but without much of a training plan.

    With my diet under control, and my family on board, I'm finally trying to get my crap together physically. We have started Stronglifts 5x5, and I'm going to attend a JKD seminar hosted by a friend this Saturday. Both of these things are a direct result of years of indoctrination provided by the fine people of Bullshido.

    Thanks all, and see you around. Maybe once the flabalanche is toned a bit I can make it to an Atlanta area throwdown.

    Dude, show up regardless. It's a throwdown, not speed dating.


    ... or is it?

    You're welcome for all the personal contributions I'm sure I've made.

    You may have misunderstood. I don't mind showing off my gut and back hair, but I don't want my ass handed to me because I'm out of shape.

    I would much rather it be because my kung-fu is weak.

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.
