Hello all,

I guess I should re-introduce myself. I was a member of this site about two or so years ago. I started taking Uechi at that time, and I went on hiatus for a spell. I have started my Uechi training again in July, and am hoping to step it up a notch now that my job is going into its slow season and I have more time to spend on myself.
Originally I was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia but have travel most of my child years and was raised all over Canada. I have been living and working in Banff Alberta for the last five years now and am happy to say this is the most amount of time I have ever lived in one area with out moving.

Not much ells to say, I am 27 years old and work in the tour and transportation industry ( it was this or become a farmer, not that farming is a bad thing, just not for me).

I am looking forward to continuing my Uechi training, as well as learning styles that may complement may Uechi studies, like some BJJ.

Thank you all, and I look forward to learning more Martial ideas and theory from all of you.

Please tell us about the dojo/teacher you are now training with. Also, your name... if you don't mind identifying yourself.

Best,
George Mattson

Hey that should be fun! I'd love to be there, unfortunately the profesor is in town on Thursdays...but we may be changing the day we roll in Banff so I might get to join you folks on the mat up north. I think it would be a blast and I'll make that trip when I can. I'll give you a schedule in the near future so you know when I'm head your way.

Good luck with the class Rick and don't break anyone. :lol: And no neck cranking your good friends!

Hey wouldn't it be a blast to get all three dojo's together to do some ground work. One day hope to bring a few of the crew. Beer's are on Dave. :multi: :multi: :multi:

Hello Amos:

I'm John, moderator of the Western Martial Arts and Military History Specialty Forum.

It's kind of a counterpoint forum I guess.

"Fight With Honor Die With Pride"

Good words. Is it a military based motto?

Just curious as to the source.

Do drop by the "other" side, so to speak.

My Dad was born in Port Maitland N.S..

Best

John

I was born a rocks throw from your Dad..."Bay Boys" sometimes called, any Acadian running in your viens :wink:

Leo here, born in "Gods country" and family later moved to english speaking Halifax when I was a youth in the sixties. Eventually I moved to Bridgewater to spread joy as a teen and populate the town with little Acadians...(ok needed a job :lol:). Found a Uechi dojo in Mahone Bay in the late seventies ( Bill Marshal) and was captivated by the charactor of the style which of course was spear headed by a young J. Maloney.
Currently in B`Water dojo under the watchful eye of Victor Swinimer whom lets me be who I am. :wink:

Could be military, I really don't know. I heard it when I was a child and made it my own over the years. I could have heard it from some family members, I'm the only one ( on my mothers side of the family ) with out a military record or for all I know I might have herd it in a movie, either way I like it.

Honour and pride are good to have. Shame on the other hand I can do with out.
