Howdy, I’m Ryan.
Originally from the Midwest in the U.S., I’ve been in Osaka for about 25 years now.
Which when you think of it, is a hell of a long time.
I work in the fitness industry, but I’m more like an anti-fitness fitness dude, or something.
It’s kinda complicated.
It’s a career I am truly grateful for since it gives me the opportunity to meet cool people all over the world. Well, except for right now with this covid thang that’s happening…
This blog is my bare square of concrete to share and talk about the things I enjoy doing and want to ramble about – playing, exploring, trying to be a good husband and dad, and really just trying to live life as best I can. Prepare to get swamped with a fair bit of stuff about martial arts and fitness training. I’m also gonna yammer on about my family, my Staffy, living in Japan, and every rock album ever recorded in the 90’s.
Thanks for following along and remember, if you’re not smiling, you’re probably holding your breath. 🙂 – Ryan
