Brad Petrino[edit]

UF campus, North Lawn

I am a graduate of the University of Florida Levin College of Law (go Gators), and currently live and work in Orlando, Florida, USA.

My primary interest on Wikipedia originally was contributing to various Japanese martial arts related articles, out of frustration with their very poor quality. I've trained in karate and aikido since about 1997, and was a student and instructor of both with the American Butokukan system at UF.

More recently, I've taken an extended break from editing, but will occasionally edit articles regarding martial arts, my home state of Florida (or legal articles related to Florida), as well as other hobbies such as guitars or firearms.
