    Intro thread for whoever gives a damn

    Hey guys.
    first stumbled on the site around a year ago while fucking around on the internet looking at alternate striking training (I had a moment of idiocy and thought there was something better than bag work and sparring..), and recently thought of it and have been lurking for maybe a few months
    Some background on myself.. I've been training in martial arts for around 7 years, in goju ryu karate (my instructor was trained by tino ceberano, easy to trace through to miyagi), and balintawak arnis for about 2 and a half years at the same school thanks to affiliation with Bobby Taboada
    I have a fairly good number of friends who practice MA as well, and really enjoy visiting a variety of schools to get my ass kicked on a relatively regular basis by practitioners of muay thai, bjj, judo, and boxing

    outside of MA, I'm interested in philosophy, and logic in general, weight training, economics and finance, law, and that's about it. oh I'm also a gymnast, though only on a casual basis in recent years
    I mostly write forum posts from my phone, like this one, so try to deal with the shitty writing
    bullshido really seems the type of community I like, because as a rule I hate political correctness, fluffing, and people that manage to sell shit using fallacies for PR
    anyway, as the title says, this is just my little intro if you guys give a shit and if you have any questions I'll be happy to answer
    p.s. I'm based in Melbourne, Australia not sure if that is on my profile

            Oh no, does that mean you're a hipster?! Jokes, welcome to the site!

            have you studied economics/finance/law/philosophy or are is it more of a hobby/interest sort of thing?

              You mean you step back after you have landed?
              pretty much, yeah :P
              I just turn up, chuck some skills on floor and rings/highbar/pbars, then leave most of the time

              thankfully not a hipster, though I know my fair share

              as to study, an interesting question... I've been doing a course offered for free online from US universities, (aka Harvard) in economics, and through family and friends I occasionally sit in at universities closer to home and listen to lectures, so I guess half hobby half study?
              philosophy and logic are just hobbies, but I'm fairly good with slabs of text and have Aristotle's organon as a regular read, along with copies other text from Socrates, Machiavelli, and of course Critique of Pure Reason by Immanuel Kant
              hoping to get a copy of kant's Critique of practical reason soon too

              oops forgot the art of war by sun tzu, also a beloved piece of writing (from what I've seen it has some appreciation here on bullshido too)
