Hey all,

After just over 12 years(!) as a member of our team, Alex (tallgeese) is leaving our staff here at KarateForums.com.

Alex has been a member for over 12 and a half years and, during that time, we've had the privilege to watch his growth as a martial artist, an instructor, and eventually, a school owner. And you can look back at his posts and see the shift in topics over time. There are 6,856 of them, the fourth most all-time. Meanwhile, Alex has been nominated 24 times in the KarateForums.com Awards (4th all-time) and won 15 of them (3rd).

As a member of the team, Alex has been a steady contributor, a solid moderator, and a positive force behind the scenes, helping to maintain this community. His contributions here have been immense, and I consider us fortunate to have had him for so long.

Thank you, Alex, for all of your contributions and support over the years. You've left a mark here.

Alex is leaving because of growing personal commitments, and plans to continue to be a member and an active member as time allows, and I look forward to continuing to see that positive force in our community.

Thanks,

Patrick

Thank you, Alex, for all you've done here both as a member and as part of Staff. Hope your endeavors outside of KF are successful all across the board. Until I see you here once again, stay safe.
