    Halp guys.

    Tell me of your experiences of moving to a totaly new town and re-finding your training. Have you done it? How did you do it? How did it go?

    I've got 19 years in martial arts. 13 of that in Wing Chun. Everywhere I look the training seems targeted at total newbies, with insane fees and binding yearly contracts. Meanwhile I'm not even sure the instructors will have anything to teach me.

    I could start over with somethin different like muay thai o bjj, but with this much time and knowledge invested in WC I want to take it futher. Not just dump it and move on.

    Met a couple from Stockholm who run judo clinics. I'll get the name of the dojo from my dad, who will be headed there soon.

    edit: whoops, turns out they live in Gothenburg.

    Ouch, going to be in a cast for long or did you get lucky?
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.
