Hello!

#1 Postby Holle » Tue Feb 21, 2006 8:24 am

I am new here and I come from Finland.

I am 30 years old hippie-bouncer. :lol: I am mostly vegan, I only use milk products a little.

I have been bodybuilding (or "bodybuilding") for several years and I used to trained martial arts for about 10 years. For example aikido, escrima, krav maga, no holds barred and brazilian ju-jutsu. But right now my "number one" is bodybuilding.

I love animals and I have 2 dogs and 1 cat. I think I will be post many animal-pics here. :lol:

Welcome dude, what are escrima and krav maga? Are they similar to another martial art that I might know?

Escrima is Filipino stick and knife fighting martial art.
And Krav Maga is military-based hand to hand fighting system. Coming from Israel.

Hello Holle,

Welcome to the team! I've been to Finland and really enjoyed my time there. I hope to return to that area someday.

Great to have you here and great to see another Bodybuilder too!

Have an awesome time, you'll meet some really cool people.

Welcome ! :D
Out of my mind...Back in five minutes.

No human can call themselves liberal or radical or even a conservative advocate of fair play, if they contribute in any way to the pain and suffering of other beings.

Hey, there! Nice to meet you. Aikido is similar to Hapkido, isn't it? I study Hapkido right now and enjoy it.

Well, I wish I could say for certain that they won't beat us again.... :? It's going to be interesting because any final 8 team can win it now.

Yep, Aikido coming from Japan and Hapkido coming from Korean(?)

But I think every martial arts is very interesting to learn.
