I thought it would be polite to introduce myself before diving headlong into the heart of the community.

My name is Simon O'Brien, I hail from Hampshire in the UK.

I am the very proud father of three beautiful daughters and have a Grandson and a Granddaughter.

I ride an old V-twin motorcycle in all weathers and almost every day of the year.

I have studied Wado-Ryu Karate for nearly 25 years

I play guitar (as the song says 'Strictly rhythm, I don't want to make it cry or sing')

Other than that I work to earn a living and take my joys when and where I can find them.

"While I think women absolutely deserve the same opportunities to play, I have a hard time accepting men and women competing together in contact sports.  I'm a big MMA fan, but there is no way I could watch a man hit a woman in the cage."
