I'm fairly sure I introduced myself last fall when I began lurking here, but just in case, since I'm going to make what might be my first real post, Hi! I train in an ASU dojo in Richmond, where I began last August and currently hold a rokkyu. Still pretty much the newbie, but just beginning to deal with being a semi-sempai, if you will; our mat is weighted heavily toward the mid-kyu range in most classes, and we have a beginners program that has created a fairly steady stream of totally new folks who look to me for help when we train together...
How many polite ways are there to say "Look, I don't know this stuff much better than you do, so let's just see what we can come up with"?
Anyway, see y'all around the forums and perhaps on the mat sometime!
