Martial Arts Experience:
I've been interested in martial arts ever since I was knee-high to a grasshopper, pulling up sticks and swinging 'em around like I was Donatello or Bruce Lee, and doing the occasional lesson here and there where I could get it. I started training when I was 18, just doing some random stuff with the UNCA Martial Arts Club, mainly escrima work and especially two-stick simuwali. I then joined my current school, the Ho Sin Sool Dojang, for which I have provided a review under the Korean schools section. I have been with my school for over 10 years now, and just made my second degree black belt this past December.

Along the way I have done various arts. Our main traditional art is Tang Soo Do, but I actually started at the school doing Kobudo, so primarily jo and bo work, with some Kenjitsu. I had done some live sword kenjitsu briefly before as well, and I'm doing Kendo now. I've done a little Tai Chi and Capoeira, and we mix in any technique from any art we think will be useful at my school, though Aikido locks are very common. I want to improve my grappling at this point, and pressure test all of my skills more. I am also working on improving my strength, lifting at least three days a week.
