I’m Malcolm, and after many years I’ve restarted training in Martial Arts.

As a teenager I studied Yee Chuan Kung Fu for a few years, then when I moved to go to University I studied Yun Jung Do. Then work, marriage, kids, but if I’m honest, mostly my own laziness got in the way and I stopped training.

Now, in my forties, I’ve started learning Hapkido, and it has rekindled the enthusiasm for Martial Arts I had when I was younger. Didn’t realise I had missed it so much.

This blog is mostly intended as a training journal for myself, but maybe some of it will be interesting for others. Worst case, the aches and pains of a middle-aged man putting himself through hell might be amusing.

Try not to laugh too hard.
