    Hello Bullshido

    Hello all. Been lurking around here for a while now, figured now was as good a time as any to finally post an introduction. Gotta deal with the insomnia somehow.

    A little background on me, my MA experience is extremely limited. Been practicing BJJ exclusively for 2 years now, I am a white belt and a very slow learner, and so far Jiu Jitsu has been my first and only MA love. With some newfound free time on my hands, I'm looking to change this.

    Currently in the process of changing dojos, loved my old one but my instructor moved away, so I'm feeling out the other gyms in town. So I won't be posting a school review until I've made my decision and settled in. Right now I've been dropping in at a gym that incorporates quite a bit more Judo into their practice than I'm used to, and I've been loving it, so I'm going to be checking out the local Judo club too and seeing if that'd be something I'm interested in. No such thing as too much grappling.


    Anyways, I don't claim to have any extensive wisdom to pass onto you guys, my cup is empty and I use these forums to learn, so you won't be hearing from me too much. Just thought I'd put a stop to this "hippie lurker" namecallin bull.

    Welcome to Bullshido.

    I thought I spelled it wrong, but as I said I'm a mechanic not an English professor.

    BJJ saved my life (I'm a recovering addict, trying to replace the crank with neck cranks) and frankly I just love it. I can't imagine stopping, I'd just like to start adding other MA's to my arsenal now.

    Welcome to Bullshido.

    It's nice to hear about sports helping people recover from addictions.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    Welcome to the site.

    Few things are more evil than the old meth. Congratulations on your new addiction.

    Super +1. That's a hard road to take.

    Thank you all very much for the welcome.

    I'm still in the "every day's an uphill battle" phase, but BJJ practice has been better than even NA meetings, there for me to keep my hands idle and clear my mind whenever I need it. I can't praise the sport or recommend it enough for someone looking for something to do that they can feel good about.

    Welcome to the site.

    I wonder if you have any idea how true that is, my friend! Rolling literally has become my new addiction, I'm up to 5 days a week, at least one practice those days, and on weekends I'm still itching to slip on the gi and go at it. If I could turn anything into my "new meth", I'm glad it could be MAs.
