These were taken in '95, I think, the summer before I went back to Virginia Tech. I was a partner in Black Belt College in Warrenton and Fredericksburg, VA. I also had a Weightroom, but that closed after I moved to Blacksburg. Black Belt College is still around; there are schools in King George, Culpeper and Ruckersville VA and I think some of our former students have started schools in Portland OR and Hidalgo, Mexico.

I'm hoping to start a class here in Seattle this fall. I really miss teaching and training. I've lost so much of my flexibility that I've recently taken up yoga. And boy am I sore from it, too!

Like I said, disregard the perm!
