Hablamos espanol, English und shreckliche deutch. Yau bu ran, ni yau jiang guo yu - na gen hau. If you want to come a vist us - fantastic - especially if you are a traditional kung fu player you will be most welcome.

Through this site I have got in contact with players all over the world, and helped people get in contact with each other. Drop me an email on martin@allmydates.com and say hi and then I can be your long distance martial arts internet lover. If you have a skype web cam we can play 'I'll show you mine if you show me yours'.
