Hi Giacomo, and welcome to e-budo.

Which branch do you train at, and how long have you been training? (we may have met at an international seminar at some time).

No apologies needed about the English, I would rather bad english than make you read my very bad Italian :idea: (I do not know much at all, although my wife speaks a little).

Hello Giacomo ;
Welcome, I am also a rather new comer to e-budo, I have found every one very friendly and always willing to answer any questions. Were you at the Internationsal Taikai in Paris last year? If so , we probably met. We were staying in the same hotel as the Italians,so we saw everyone at breakfast and on the bus to the sports centre.

Take care and don't worry about your English, it's nice just to communicate.

Welcome Giancomo,
All Shorinji Kenshi are brothers and sisters wherever we are (and we're in 28 countries now). You're very welcome, no matter the quality of your English. Or shall we speak Japanese? :p

Hi Giancomo.

Just to fill in with everybody else, Welcome to e-budo.

As for English, I also have another native language, many of the members of e-budo does, its no problem.
Even gramatical and spelling freaks like Tony can be nice to us, even if our spelling is not perfect. :laugh:
It is ok, most people will understand anyway.
