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 Training Body Reading Without Sparring
It's funny... What you called "playing ninja" was how I first learned blind-fighting. That led to, after a period of time and successful performance, donning a blindfold and having to perceive the sounds, feelings, etc. around us.

comment Why are firearms not part of the martial arts world?
@RobZ: I notice it tends to be a rather unknown skill set. Not quite as rare as, say, tosuijutsu (combative swimming), but surprisingly under appreciated.

comment Which martial arts focus on self defense?
@Sardathrion: Not all competition need take place in tournament format. Randori and free-sparring can serve adequately if properly trained.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary amusingly defines "several" first as "more than one", then "more than 2, but fewer than many", then "being a great many"... I think they need to re-evaluate their definition :D

comment What's the best way to stop a nose bleed quickly?
Hmmm. Follow up question... Is this a nose bleed from trauma or a naturally occurring bleed? The reason I ask is because if it's one caused from the exertion of the class and climate of the room, preventative measures may be appropriate as well.
