I love my island. In addition to my white slavery and opium trade, I love martial arts. Every 7 years, I invite the forums artists to come discuss the arts on my island. This year, it's an open, which means this thread is for the newbies to the arts, because some of you are looking for a school, or have questions, and a panel of experts can share their experiences with you. So when this thread shuffles back, and a newbie throws out a question, link them to this. I'll kick it off. Warning signs that the dojo-dojang-kwoon-social hall your looking at might not be legit. Go.
