Outside of being a geek, my other passion is martial arts. This week, my family traveled to Philadelphia to compete in another big tournament in our circuit, NASKA (North American Sports Karate Association). I was able to stop in DC today on the drive to Philly and show the kids the office I work of, even though I am rarely there. We live in Alabama and the only real travel we have done as a family started when we began martial arts training. There is nothing like spending time with the family and nothing like seeing their eyes light up when they experience something new.
