My name is also David, I’m 42 and I live in France.
I’ve practised Shotokan karate in my hometown when I was 20 for three years, and hit the brown belt level.
Unfortunately, my job schedule became incompatible with the dojos opening hours, so I had to stop. I was a bit sad because i really liked it.
It’s great now, with technology evolution, that I can go back on this track.
