Hello everyone, my name is Remrie Arrie and I just joined this website, however I've known about it for a few months now and have read alot of what some people have to offer on this website.

I've been in martial arts for about 7 years, currently off and on since I left my home and first dojo there as well. I'm a 1st Degree black belt in Tae Kwon do and since I left I've been experimenting other styles.

So far I've done 4 months of Judo in a nearby dojo and about 5 months of Aikido at my local college learning from a second degree black belt who teaches there part time off and on. Next semester spanning mid August to mid December I'll be taking Tai Chi at my college and maybe take up the TKD course that I did once before; I kinda feel like I shouldn't since I went there and learned that I'm the same rank as my instructor, I think I offended her by accident.

I plan on working with my Aikido instructor from college and possibly join his dojo if he sets one up here in Ventura County CA East of LA county. I learned alot from it and look forward to adopting alot of the philosophies and skills.

Outside of the dojo I am an entrepreneur college student in the animal industry who is planning on developing various companies and making them into good size businesses that offer alot of services across various boards. I mainly want to provide animal and educational, and charity services.

One idea spinning in my head at the moment is to create my own martial arts style in the future that utilizes alot of the same philosophies that everbody teaches, especially in aikido, but teach them in a different way. The more and more I learn about what I have in mind and how I go about doing it, I understand that it's a lot similar to philosophies Bruce Lee encorperated into his lifestyle and attempted to pass on.

It's nice to meet you all, I hope to learn alot in the future.
