Noob here, as in "new to Bullshido," certainly not new to martial arts or discussion of it.

First and foremost I'd like to thank the distinguished Phrost for extending an invitiation. While I run a small site which despite having a theme of pro wrestling has become much more of a MMA site, most of the open-forum discussion had been limited to another board which I'm sure we all know and which is littered with buttloads of stupidity amongst the two or three posts of intelligent discussion per 20 page thread. (let's just say it will take a while to get used to saying "nutrider" instead of "nuthugger").

I'd long heard this place was a solution to said ignorance and having finally gotten off my ass I'm looking forward to taking part.

As an old fart, I've been watching MMA since the very first UFC and am one of those guys who it took years to get over calling it "No Holds Barred" combat. Beyond a few karate classes I've never trained in any of the martial arts but certainly have lots of respect for those who do. You're braver men and women than I am... I readily admit to preferring watching people punch each other in the face than taking part.

What else? Oh, I'm a total whore so as I write commentaries you'll definitely know about it. I even did an in-depth analysis of Brock/Couture which got some legit props (and a few laughs) but I'm not ENOUGH of a whore to already link it in my very first post. That won't last. :tongue1:

Anyway, thanks again to Phrost for the invite and thanks in advance to everyone else for what I hope will be a mutually beneficial and stimulating relationship. Just by the warehouse full of emoticons I can tell I'm going to like it here.

Welcome to the Bullshido Forums Barbwire Mike... Make sure you review your dojo (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=83) and add it to your user control panel so you can get the http://www.bullshido.net/images/dojoreview1.gif icon in your user info bar in your posts.

Welcome, BWM (avoided BM)! Judging by your avatars, you'll enjoy participating in the armory. Lots of intelligent discourse there as well as the rest of BS. Enjoy!

Well it's not happy hour yet. I'm notoriously cheap. vhttp://www.lethalwrestling.com/upload/shobon.gifv
