Grateful for a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday. Due to some family dynamics, we had two separate dinners. I am happily fasting today!

Grateful for my students, my instructors (legends), my mentors/instructors in around my age range, and an emergent set of martial arts contemporaries in my life: people who I either teach in one context and train with in another, or people I teach who know just as much as I do in other areas.

I would like to thank everyone for the many things I have learned here, good and bad. I don't know if I will be fighting in gatherings anymore, but I want to say that many here have propelled me to the career that I am in now, one which many have no experience in. I am completely grateful for those of you that helped me make it.
