Let’s have a hearty welcome to our newest contributer, Old Rubber Legs, a.k.a. “The Dark Mantis Manager,” my Shidi from north of the Capitol! He’s a life long devotee of the martial arts who’s studied Southern & Northern Tanglangquan, Baguazhang, Xingyiquan, & Bafanshou. Currently, he’s learning the arts of Speaking, & Meditation, as well as refining the essentials of Martial Nei Gong. He’ll be contributing occasional posts, articles, & whatever else he feels you need to know. We meet regularly to train, spar, & discuss the theoretical side, so expect some collaborative efforts later in the year. Check him out at danceofthedarkmantis.wordpress.com when you need some motivation!
