My hobbies include martial arts, miniatures, painting and obviously blogging.
Above is a picture of me with my short lived Haidong Gumdo teacher.
I have belts in Judo(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judo), Taekwondo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taekwondo) and have studied Wing Chung (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wing_Chung). If you asked me which of those three is the most effective I would say if you have just a year then Judo. If you have about two years then Wing Chung. I wasn’t too impressed with Taekwondo and the gymanstic side of the art makes it impracticable for someone older such as myself.
I am out of shape and out of practice and would say at this point my knowledge of martial arts is more theoretical and my ability to do martial arts is limited. The following is my contribution to a theoretical understanding of martial arts:
I developed an interest in Dungeons and Dragons miniatures (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dungeons_and_dragons_miniatures) while in Taipei but there is basically nothing like this going on in Korea so this hobby has been temporarily shelved as well. Below are some pictures of my D&D minis collection in Taipei.

I also collect all sorts of stuff including comic books, books about comic books, books about the history of science fiction, fox related stuff (http://s883.photobucket.com/albums/ac35/foxhugh/Hobbies%20Fox%20Collection/) and miniatures of all sorts. My most unique collection is what I call tin houses (https://foxhugh.wordpress.com/2009/03/01/i-collect-tin-houses/).
I like to paint and some examples of my artwork can be found at:
