Welcome to Rejoining cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Tao

My First Gi and White Belt, from 1991
I began studying martial arts as a cadet at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 United States Air Force Academy in 1991. During my military career I tried various styles, including Karate, boxing, Judo, combatives, Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Filipino stick and knife fighting, Wing Tsun, and American Kenpo.

By early 2001 I had a broken wrist and a desire to change direction. I separated from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Air Force in March of that year and later stopped practicing Kenpo.

In late 2002 my wife and I moved to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 DC area, and within two years I was looking for a new martial arts school. I never found a good fit, but I also fought my way through three shoulder surgeries and related problems. In 2012 I managed to try a Tai Chi class, which was fun in its own way. I finally recovered my health during 2015.

By early 2016 I decided to take anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r look at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 local martial arts scene, and I was pleased to find and enroll in a Krav Maga school.

During that 15 year gap from 2001 to 2016, a lot changed. Mixed martial arts, reality-based defense, social media, Amazon.com, my own age, and many ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r factors have altered cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 landscape. Most of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 changes appear positive, but that could be cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 result of naive optimism at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 beginning of a journey. I expect not!

In this blog I plan to explore my new relationship with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 martial arts. I am interested in many styles and techniques, but I am also fascinated by history and martial culture. (I'm currently pursuing a PhD in War Studies, in addition to my day job.) I also love books, and I have over 100 covering martial arts and Asian culture.

If cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se topics appeal to you, feel free to join me on this journey to rejoin cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Tao, or "Way," that I left so many years ago.

Sometimes you can go home again. This is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story of how I hope to do that.
