I was invited to join the forum by fellow RSF member chud, who's been kind enough to begin teaching me xingyi and bagua. I have no prior training in the internal arts (unless you consider aikido an internal art). The only arts I've trained with some consistency are FMA (Inosanto blend and FCS kali), BJJ (blue belt), JKD/Jun fan (which includes muay Thai and western boxing), capoeira (no way I can do it at my age now), aikido, some kenpo and wing chun.
Even though I started training back in '91, life always got in the way and I've never managed to stay in one system or school for long.
