  • Kato Video - from the school I trained at (in white)
  • Mt. Umnumnum (JPEG)
  • Video - Take Care of yourselves and others.

Cal Poly is one of the best environments I've ever been in. Students are, at least in class, generally sharing, patient, cooperative, supportive and a bunch more words that mean they are open to students' difference. I love that so many students are this way but there is always more to learn about other people in the world and things you can do to make things better for all students.

  • Video - Team that I used to train with (in purple) - The neat thing about table tennis is that styles can be almost completely offensive or defensive. The green team is a defensive team. The purple team is an offensive team. Equipment is different.
