About me

Gender MALE
Location Richmond, British Columbia, Canada
Introduction I was made in Canada around 30 years ago and had a relatively normal childhood. My parents are originally from China, but had to flee to Taiwan because Uncle Chiang and Uncle Mao didn't get along. I've worked a variety of jobs including 5 years retail, 10 years with a major Canadian airline, about a year in manufacturing (wood products), and a few months as a freight forwarder. I currently have two jobs that I am very, very happy with. My interests include running, mountain biking, weight training, reading, collecting man-crap, anime and manga, cars, firearms, and martial arts. I've dabbled in a variety of martial arts including Judo, Tae Kwon Do, mixed-martial arts fighting techniques (before it got the fancy name MMA), Wushu, and most recently, Iaido. I've studied Wushu for over 10 years (and still suck). For the last five years, I've been a student of Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaido under Inoue Sensei. Iaido has become an obsession for me. Also, for the last three years, I've been studying Sado or Chanoyu, the way of tea, commonly known as Japanese Tea Ceremony.
Interests Iaido, Sado, Wushu, snowboarding, reading, cars, anime, food, sake, Macross, Star Trek, Star Wars, Guns.
