    Chastised so posting a Hello

    I want to lurk. I *like* to lurk. But the system has chastised me for not posting something so here's my intro.

    I'm a 42 year old guy in Northern Virginia, a professional computer nerd. I was getting out of shape, so about a year ago I decided to find something new and interesting to get my ass back in the gym. When both a friend and an ex-girlfriend independently suggested finding a good martial arts program, I decided to give it a try.

    I began taking Krav Maga. I've had a ton of fun with it, lost 25lbs, and have been surprised at how much I have enjoyed learning a martial art. I wish I had known this about myself 20 years ago.

    Make that martial arts, plural. In addition to Krav I started taking Brazilian Jiu Jitsu a couple of months ago. I earned my first stripe this week.

    Sweet, where are you at, KM NOVA, Silverback, First Defense or Pedro Sauer's place? I'm guessing Pedro Sauer's, although I'm not sure.

          Clearly. Why didn't the girls in high school realize this?
