I don't know what to call myself now.. :-)

I realize that I still have my Shodan certificate from the J.K.A. Organization. Therefore, I must be a Shotokan karate-ka. It's just that I do not have a place that I train in right now.

In addition to this, I belong to the International Kyokushin Organization #3 with a Green belt ( 4th kyu ).

BUT to top things off, and to bring a big wide smile on my lips, I have been officially invited, and accepted as an Associate Black belt member of H.R.G.B ( Hikaru Ryu). Check it out!
Thank you Shihan Colin.

Also, I have been officially invited, and have accepted joining M.C.L.A.A. (Molum Combat Arts Association) as an affiliate Black belt from Canada. Check it out Thank you Sigung Tim White.

I am so honored, and humbled. Domo Arigato Gozaimasu

It feels like one door closed, but 15 doors were blasted open by the sound of the slamming.

I don't know what to call myself now.. I guess I could say that I'm a black belt that studies Martial arts. If someone asks me which style, I'll have to say "whichever one that I'm in at the moment."
