I've been lurking here for a while but decided to finally post to get that notification thing to go away.I'm about as green a newb as you can get, and I feel like a pretty big ***** for not posting before now.

I've got about a year and half experience training in a system called Lotus Self-Defense, then went on a MA hiatus that I really regret. Found a school in Olympia, WA that teaches Muay Thai and BJJ and I'm looking forward to starting there when I move in the fall.

So... yeah. Hi.

So newguy, you decided to go ahead and register huh? Cool. Don't forget to review your dojo (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=83).

Thanks a heap man. Those links probably pre-empted about a dozen stupid questions/realizations.
