I read somewhere once that the practice of martial arts is like climbing a mountain.  It takes, sustained, focused effort, and it’s hard as you go up.  And when you get to the peak and take in the amazing vista, you discovered there’s another peak to climb, and more hard climbing to do.  But the wonder of it all is, that as you climb, you get to see some really cool stuff – and hopefully, if you’re paying attention along the way, the joy of the climb alone and the things you discover along the way that’ll make it all worthwhile.

Well, this site is about that climb.  I’m not a particularly good climber, but I try to pay attention to where I’m going and I’ll try to share my discoveries with you.  Consider this a travelogue of the martial arts world, and you’re all my fellow travel buddies.
