I'm a web developer, IT consultant, and programmer with a property management firm in Orange County, CA. I also teach and train in Bujinkan Ninpo Taijutsu.

A lot of my side-projects end up rolling into my work life, and feel that the experience I've gained with web development, Ruby, Qt, C/C++, Java, etc. may actually be of use to somebody.

I've recently joined the Martial Arts private beta, and will be answering questions on there with regularity.

Oh, and I really hate when people tell me, "No, it can't be done." You're wrong; It can, it should, it will, so shut up and watch me.

Nothing is true; everything is permissible.

comment Wing chun modification with only palm heel strikes?
@Trevoke: Contradictory. Fighting methods are martial arts – codified systems of combat trained for personal defense, sport, spiritual development, or health.

comment Why are firearms not part of the martial arts world?
@dmckee: To clarify, it was muskets that were introduced at that time. The hand-held cannon was introduced by the Chinese earlier. Basically a big lacquered vase held in the unenviable position between the legs and fired (as one technique), or braced in the arms... They had a nasty habit of blowing up after a couple of shots.

Added an answer based on what I managed to find. I can not be sure, but based on your information it's the best I can do. Perhaps if you can take a look and give me corrections as to what you're intending, then I can give you a better answer.
