New here! (Obviously)

My daughter started Goju Ryu Karate about a year ago, and after a month or so she started pestering me to do it with her.

I did TKD as a teenager and got up to Green belt before stopping with an injury. After healing I tried Goju Ryu for 6 months but going to that from full-contact TKD just felt really weird. (Control? What for?) I stopped after getting my yellow belt.

Thie dojo we joined last year was very highly recommended by a friend who is 3rd Dan in another city. It took at most three weeks and the bug bit me. I was completely hooked - very unlike my experience when I was younger. I've read over a dozen books already, watched hundreds of YouTube videos, and I train at the dojo as often as I am able and allowed to.

I just graded the other day for my Orange belt (should find out in a week or two) and I'm looking forward to continuing my journey.
