1. surviving on FFL equivalent to minimum wage. 2. annoying Sgtar15, actually that is easy. 3. cooking, my secret skill. BTW, JKA or Shoto Kai? You would probably be impressed by my pictures of Funakoshi. My instructor studied directly under him for a time.

[b]Name three things you consider yourself an "expert" in.[/b] For Me: 1)Offensive/Aggressive driving specializing in pothole and pedestrian avoidance: A few years of driving in Manhattan in a [b]marked[/b] sector car is easy, try doing the same in an [b]unmarked[/b]! 2)Pizza Connisuer - Hey, it's New York pal. I know the difference between good pizza and freakin' GREAT pizza 3)Back Massage - 5 out of 5 girlfriends(the long term relationship kind)can't be wrong! [b]Name three things you WANT to be an "expert" in.[/b] 1)Have a 1st degree Black Belt in Jiu-Jitsu.

Ah the nemesis to us Shoto kai, you do know your kata are basterdized updates right? LOL. Actually the major difference is we still practice Ten No Kata and have less emphasis on sporting competition. Some of our Kata such as Naifanchi (Tekki to you) are the original Okinawan versions though. They are not as Japanese stylized as the JKA versions.

My sensei was Amer-asian, his father was a US serviceman who married a Japanese girl during his time as occupational forces. His Japanese grandfather was a director of the Kyoto Budokai. And the coolest picture I ever saw was one of his Grandfather, Funakoshi, Jigaro Kano, Ueshiba and Kenwa Mabuni at his Grandfathers house in Kyoto. Ueshiba was pretty old by this time.

I'll post my pic of Funakoshi at the first demonstration of Okinawan Karate ever in Japan for the then Crown Prince Hirohito in 1917. I've got some seriously old and rare pictures. I've also got some video of Funakoshi circa 1924 demonstating Kata.

Hehe, that's what I found most appealing though. I like the mix of sporting competition as well as the traditional discipline. To tell you the truth, shotokan is not my favorite of the formal styles I've learned. There are strenghths and weaknesses in all styles and that's why I've varied my studies among the traditional styles. Kenpo's great for close quarters, shotokan's great for stable stances and solid blows, TKD's great for explosive kicks. In the end it all becomes one anyway.

My knowledge that I will never fully know or understand or conquer any of the interests that are mine, allows me to be comfortable in my current knowledge level. I am also always learning. After saying that, my best fields are: 1- Mortgage Banking, but Mrs. Wiggy is light years ahead of me. 2- US History, growing up with my father, a crofessor of US History made this a no brainer! 3- Paramedicine, had some kind of knack and was never flustered, wierd. 4- My woodscraft, Dad taught me well, I can live on very little, almost anywhere, for a long time. 5- Home repair and light construction, did my addition, deck with roof, rebuilt a block wall, built waterfalls and pools, landscaped all of my backyard, and all of the normal homeowner repairs and upgrades. 6- Understanding my wife, but we spend 24/7 together, every minute. You either get good or die![:D] Some things I want to increase my current level of proficiency in are: 1- Auto Mechanics, I can limp through most everything, just don't feel comfortable yet. 2- Speaking a foreign language, probably Spanish. 3- Be able to shoot as well as my rifle.

Expert (actually just have experience in... there is ALWAYS more to learn) in: 1)Gaining the trust of other people/animals... I know this may sound like a weird one but I'm amazed at other people's/animal's level of confiding/trusting me. 2)Telecommunications/troubleshooting... this is a trade thing. I don't claim to be an expert on CIWS, either, but I was pretty decent at overhauling the gun after my time in. 3)Debate.. another odd one but I competed successfully and coached for a long time. There's a lot more to it than just starting an argument. It did freak my momma out, though, how mercenary I could be on topics. Skilled at (added this one because these are things I am good at and enjoy): 1)Gardening 2)Cooking/baking 3)Writing 4)Photography 5)Pool/darts Would like to be an expert in: 1)Construction/architecture... I've built some stuff but I would like to be more confident in my abilities 2)Several martial arts forms... just started with Muay Thai, Kali and Jiu Jitsu 3)Mechanics/car repair...

Sad?? Not at all! For me, cultivating the soil, planting, trimming, weeding, pruning, etc. are all very relaxing. There's something very stress-relieving and yet still very primal about working in the yard. Getting right down into the dirt, hands working the soil, creating living landmarks, beautiful scenery and food for the family, it does amazing things to rejuvenate my spirit. In this Gigahertz-paced world, getting in tune with the calming pace of nature's growth cycles by gardening instills patience and restores sanity in an insanely-paced culture.
