the sorrows of young werther


hi everybody!
my name is nicholas, i'm 18 years old and i'm ftm.
i've always loved martial arts but i've only been able to train in karate (up to yellow belt) and kendo. i started training in kendo when i was 14 (did it for a year) and then had to leave because, of course, my parents thought it was too much of a 'boy's sport'...! now i started training again in a new city and even though i realize how weird and sad it is to have another sensei (when i still lived in my hometown i had the only recognised japanese kendo teacher in italy!), i still love this art very much and enjoy training as much as i did years ago.

so hi, nice to meet you all!

(barrie: i used a couple of tags because i saw none, hope you don't mind! )
(everyone: please never mind my english - i'm italian! :P )

Benvenuto, Nicholas! What style of karate did you do, and what are you doing now?
Grazie! :D It was Shotokan karate. Now I'm only doing kendo, of which I'm not aware if there are different styles, actually!
Very cool. I do Uechi Ryu. :) I don't think there are different styles of kendo.

I'm going to add you on my new journal, btw, because I saw you added me!

Tags are cool! I haven't made any yet but they are very useful so feel free to use them!

Congrats on getting back into training!
I'm so sorry I never added you (you didn't miss much except whining in my journal, LOL). My new personal journal is chasing_the_sun
haha, no problem. i added your new journal ! :)
