Welcome Gina!

I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

I got tired of starting over and working back to where I was, so I have stopped giving up!

For the new folks, since several of you have put up your names and haven't spoken up in the weekly thread - this isn't an active discussion thread so much as a place to let us keep track of who is doing what and whose name goes with what user name. Please feel free to join us on the weekly thread and tell us about your latest class, achievements, tests, goals, whatever!

You can accomplish anything if you'll do it.

Nothing will be accomplished unless you do it.

If something was not accomplished, that's because you didn't do it.

The last three were all offered at the same place, but they were distinct curricula with their own ranks and tests, and kobudo was run by a different instructor entirely.

Being fairly new to this forum I feel like I haven't quite connected who is who yet. It would be nice to be able to connect a "real" name and a state that you live in so that I can form a visual map in my head.

If you are comfortable sharing will you post what you want us to call you and where you are from (state is fine). Also what type of Martial Arts you are currently studying and have in the past.
