What people say?

the surprise was the camaraderie of training with other like minded people.  I had hoped to meet a few new people but I had hardly expected to be accepted into an entire community of caring, strong and determined individuals.

For the first time in my life, I had enjoyed a sport.  Before that class, I had never thought I could be strong, let alone do a martial art
