    G'day cobbers or how's ya fettle marra.

    Post by Jim Armstrong on Tue Aug 12, 2008 12:36 pm

    Hi guys,

    My names Jim as you can see by my not made up name. (for a change)

    I have been doing the martial arts for over 20 years now and done a bit of this and a wee bit of that. Mainly Thai boxing/kick boxing and Eskrima which has led me into the wonderful world of self protection.

    I have been doing the so called RBSD/personal protection fo a few years now and am still enjoying it. I am origianlly from bonny Newcastle upon Tyne but now live in Melbourne, Australia where I run a small club called Raw combatives. I am probably a bit different to most of the guys on here as I don't live in a particulary violent society unlike I did when I lived back in the UK. This has changed me and the way I teach and what I teach. For me it's all about personal growth and loving who you are so you can love those around you. Yes I know how it sounds but I am far from a robe wearing preacher or one of those lovely do gooders.

    I still base it all around the base need of self protection, and the odd bit of martial sexiness for a bit of fun. I will contribute what I can and take what I need, or don't need as the case may be!

    Thanks guys.

    Sorry guys but if you already have a Geordie on here I will have to leave.

    Not because there is going to be way to much hardness (Ooh I feel quite sick)

    It's the fact that it's hard enough to get along in life just trying to be, but to have to measure yourself up against two Geordies is really just not fair. I mean how are all you lads going to cope?

    Ah! Okay I'll stay I'll just try not to be too brilliant! (Yes thats correct ALL Geordies are somewhat delusional.....or at least that's what we like to tell people so they don't feel inferior....isn't that right Bob?)

    Thanks again for the welcome guys.
