The Friends You Meet!

     Okay one of the great things about training in the martial sciences is the people that you meet along the way.  Practitioners of the martial sciences in general get along very, very well.  Why, because we all have some serious things in common.  The desire and want to feel effective, the initiative to keep on training, no issues with sweating and working out, the desire to learn, practice and incorporate our training into our everyday lives and so much more.  Along this path that I have chosen or has chosen me.  I have met the greatest of friends and life long relationships that will continue until the end.  There is something about a bunch of guys and ladies working out with common goals and desires that really creates deep bonds.  In the martial sciences you come across absolutely fantastic people who will go to any length to help you out if needed.  True friends so to speak.  Following are some pictures from my personal photo library of some of the people I have met along the way.  I wish there were more but I only started taking pictures a few years ago.  Enjoy!



There are so many more but I will start with these on this post for now.  Alas I never took photos as a youth (think till about thirty five or so) so many great photo opportunities were missed.  That is a lesson for everyone.  Also the ones I did take that are non digital well some of the best suffered from water damage a long time ago.  So enjoy these!
