My name is the Joseph Dunkin. I'm sankyu in Fugakukai Aikido, but i still suck really bad, every now and then i get lucky enough to do a technique right. Ano... I've been doing ma on and off for thirteen years. so there's probably only nine years of hard training in there, and that's pushing it. So anyway, I'm a Buddhist, I'm a failing college student who is majoring in philosophy for reasons unknown. I also study a little (very little) Kendo. And I am keeping up with my Brazilian Jiu Jutsu and when i get the chance I like to get thrown around by judoka, and I'm getting back into Kung fu. I love anime and Jdorama (GTO, Taiho Shizaucho(?)). I am totally taken with the philosophy of Aikido. I thought Aikido was stupid when i was first introduced to it, but then i got to hear about some of the philosophy and I fell in love. Anyway, i think that covers it for me. Amitabha
