I have been studying martial arts for about 2 years now and am currently a blue belt in American karate. I have been in several tournaments but have never really won anything of serious merit. I, as of yet, have never had a serious fight outside of a sparring format and would like to see how well I would be in a fight (same as Burnie). I own my own sparring gear and have a second set that Burnie could possibly use. I am about 5'5'' in height and weight about 230 pounds.
