Since very young I have had a great interest in the martial arts. As you can imagine my interest also grew in other areas such as fitness, weight training and flexibility. Even today, you can still find me in a relaxing evening with my nose in yet another book of similar subject. Mind you, I am a firm believer in the practical being far more important than theoretical so I spend a lot of my spare time actively developing and honing.
A friend of mine recently introduced me to the PIC. This is a Programmable Integrated microChip which allows mere mortals such as us, with a limited knowledge of electronics and access to a PC, to design and develop small electronic devices. I am currently experimenting with a few prototypes at the moment to enhance my martial art training and teaching. So far my fully functional projects have been among gym timers and bleep test devices. I have a good few more ideas and plans already drawn up for more intricate training devices.
