I currently live in southern Sweden, where I'm studying computer security at the university. When I have my masters of scienc exam in said subject, I hope to start studying for a Ph.D in cryptography.

I spend a lot of time by the computer, for obvious reasons, and I program in multiple languages, mainly C++, PHP and Python. I do have interests other than computer science, however, and the ones to which I am most dedicated are martial arts (mainly Gung Fu and HEMA), games (computer, board and roleplaying games) and linguistics (preferably the study of extinct languages).

I am part of the StackExchange comminuty mainly to learn, but I will do my best to teach as well if I feel that I have something to offer.

comment Is it better to start out with a light weapon?
Yes, that is correct, and I've seen them before. Unfortunately Gothenburg is on the west coast, and I live on the east coast. But I May be able to go there some time to train perhaps. Anyway, thanks again, I'll have a look at the Regenyei feder! :)

Thanks a lot for your advice! I'm glad you mentioned the poor quality of the Hanwei federschwert; I've actually thought of buying one. And the swing looks very interesting, so I'll take a closer look at this!

comment What's the physics behind checking kicks?
Now that I think of it, one possibility could be that the nerves in the periosteum gets so badly damaged that the sense of pain is dulled, and unfortunately I can't credit a (scientifically) reliable source for my statements, since I've learned them from my former Djeu-Gao and a fellow practioner who is a nurse.

comment What's the physics behind checking kicks?
Yes, cartalige is primarily located in joints, but it exists in other parts of the body too, such as your nose, ears and rib cage. While it is true that bone gets tougher as is gets damaged, this has nothing to do with pain,since bones have ni connection to the somatosensory system. The periosteum, however, does.
