I started the art late, at about 27. I'm 33 now and nearing my black belt. I'm totally in love with this art. I was so ignorant of it until I saw Lyito Machida compete in MMA. He really opened my eyes. Prior to ShotoKan I trained in San Soo Kung Fu, Kanukenbo, and MMA training.
Shotokan is far and away my favorite.
Looking forward to meeting fellow Shotokan enthusiasts!
