View Full Version : Hello I'm new and clueless

Yep, new and clueless.

In spite of what some other web-sites would have you believe, we here at Bullshido.net welcome you, pastorpunch, with open arms and hope that you will share with us your unique experiences and ideas on the martial arts.... so that we may then make fun of those experiences and ideas.

We knew you could do it! pastorpunch posted, YAY! And if a bot is this rude, just imagine harsh this is gonna be. Hope you're wearing a thick gi.

7/21/2008 5:06am,
Yep, new and clueless.

And with a name like pastorpunch you'll fit right in beautifully. :) Welcome to the group, if you have any questions, feel free to visit the FAQ area located somewhere in this site, (probably in the part that says Search the Forums). I'm sure you'll get a warm welcome from at least one of the Administrators...or at least your neighborhood friendly bot.

Welcome to Bullshido.

I'm old and clueless.

Are you a pastor who punches or do you punch pastors? It's all good either way. Welcome.

Welcome to Bullshido!

Yep, new and clueless.

As you've listed your style as BJJ, I'll go right ahead and post the usual:

I recently started writing a BJJ Beginner FAQ (http://slideyfoot.blogspot.com/2006/10/bjj-beginner-faq.html) on my blog, which should hopefully answer some of your questions as a new BJJ student.

As I mention in that FAQ, I'd recommend the following threads:

Are you a pastor who punches or do you punch pastors? It's all good either way. Welcome.

Perhaps a pastor who mixes what every backyard party needs: a mean bowl of punch.

pastorpunch reminds me of the priest in Fight Club.
