Currently a developer of Java and dabbling in electronics and micro controller (PIC / AVR) programming in my free time. I have some working background in C# and some more in C & Visual Basic 6 (would you believe) for embedded control systems.

I've also messed around with Pascal, Delphi, Prolog, C++ and various 1980s PC BASIC variations. I've even done some commercial work using REXX.

Other interests? Reading, painting/drawing, comics, movies,martial arts, snowboarding, basketball, power lifting, running, cycling (MTB), home brewing, blacksmithing...it might be quicker to say what I'm NOT interested in.

comment Practicing Mixed Martial Arts Versus Practicing One Specific Form of Martial Arts
There's also the problem if an MMA class caters to MMA competition, it has some failings in self defence. This is because MMA is no "no holds barred"; small joint locks, biting, gouging, groin/back of head blows are not trained for or taught.

comment Is weight training useful in martial arts?
There is some horrible misinformation on this page. I'm glad this is the top answer.

Toning isn't a real thing. Muscles don't slow you down unless you've trained them wrong.
