Re-itroduction

Postby Tao_in_the_Mountians » Fri Oct 06, 2006 7:45 pm

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.
Fight with honour, Die with Pride.

Oh, yes. Sorry I should have said this in the first post.

It great my Uechi class comes with gym and pool membership, and the hot tub is great after being thrown around for a couple hours. :D

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

Postby JOHN THURSTON » Thu Oct 12, 2006 2:52 am

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..

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.
