Hi everyone!

I've been reading the forum for a while and have finally got round to opening an account.

I'm Josh, Shotokan karate-ka from the UK. I've been training for about a year now, and am currently a 7th Kyu yellow belt. Bit of a late starter (I'm 30) but, as everyone says, the best time to start is right now!

Welcome to the forum Josh. It's never too late to start -- I started my current round with Uechi-Ryu at the ripe young age of 46. Train hard, train well, and good luck!

Hi, Josh
Welcome to the Forum!
Most people who actually continue in Martial Arts begin later in Life. 30 is young! You have many years to enjoy!
cheers,
T
