Forgot to introduce myself.
« on: 2011-03-14, 07:20:10 »
Hey all,

It's a bit belated but...

My name, the one best used here, the one that is most 'me' is Ivan Ivanovitch Serebrenikov. I am a member of the SCA and have been in the West Kingdom for most of 30 years. I have been an SCA fighter for 11 years and a martial artist for 21. Aside from the West Kingdom I have also resided in Ansteorra, An-Tir, and Northshield.

Also both my mother & my step-dad are in the SCA, both fight, and my step-dad is a Knight of the West.

I have received a few awards, most for service and one for art via my experience in the West.

Ahh..hmmm.. I think I covered it but... Questions?

-Ivan

Welcome Ivan! Just wondering, what other martial art have you done besides SCA?

Just started in a HEMA Allinace Longsword & Dagger group last year, and before the SCA I studied Tae Kwon Do from a school that brought in guest instructors from Judo, Jujitsu, Aikido, Kung Fu, Escrima, Hapkido, Muay Thai, and Boxing.

Also I have listened and watched my step-dad talk about & demonstrate fencing for 25+ years (he was Nevada C Class Champ for 2 yrs once).
