Im Gerard Marino, Los Angeles based videogame/film/tv music composer. Recently promoted to green belt in Mushin-Ryu TJJ (an off-shoot of Danzan-Ryu, as I suppose most California based TJJ schools are). I've been lurking around this site for about 3 years, and obviously think it rocks mightily.

Hey all, I'm Lyndsey I'm 20 and i live between southport and preston in the northwest.

I'm a full time Nursery Nurse working with 0-2 year olds, which can be nice and stressful but very rewarding.

As for hobbies, well im into my cars in a big way especially the classic Mini :-D And the other fairly obvious one would be jujitsu lol Got my black belt back in '99 then gold tab part 1 in '00, then unfortunately i got a rather bad injury causing me to take some time out, just around the same time my old club started messing around with who taught where and with my gcse's i decided enough was enough. Well earlier this year finally got round to finding a new club,.. and instead of starting where i left off im going straight for my senior black, so revising like mad, and training as much as possible, just need to watch i dont aggrivate my old injury/ find ways around it.... swinging weapons around is all good a fun, but when i have limited grip in my left hand due to tearing the ligaments in my thumb it becomes well even more fun :-))

Anyways Hello :-D

Im Deano 39, retired police officer, 1st dan judo and traditional jitsu, (have been for years) just getting into brazilian jitsu, seems to me to be just an extention of the original jitsu. Although i think it defends on the level of jitsu you have been doing, I have seen many, many styles over the years, those that do the fancy elaborate jitsu are unfortunately going to be left behind.

Hello all my name is Shaun
I reside and live in British Columbia Canada I am a senior meat clerk.

Ever since a very young age I have always been interested in protecting myself but I have also been one to be very conservative to when, where and to what extent I protect myself.
My favorite quote: "It takes more of a man to walk away from a fight then to get in one".
I am honestly thinking about taking further training have gone to see about it already but have come up short on what I want. All that I do know has been self trained.
My self training has mainly been Tai Chi Chuan with various other street style variables put up into the mix of things along with studies in a few other form's and well to finish it all off I am 29.
