I am Christopher, son of Gregory, son of Carol. I was born in the year of our lord 1980. My mother named me Christopher which means "Christ bearing". I come from a very large Irish family whose faith in Jesus Christ through the Catholic faith continues here in the United States . In discovering the plan the Lord has for me I have been a musician, a storyteller/writer, and a warrior. The men of my family in the old country become one of two things; some become priests and the others warriors.

Here in the Western Circle I learn the art of the sword and walk path of the warrior in my own way. In doing this I have had the great honor of receiving training from Head Kaiden Gad and have had the privelidge of true studentship to Kaiden Charles.

My current goals as a swordfighter are to earn the rank of sword dancer and to pass my level 2 steel test.

I believe that there are inescapable and insurmountable forces/circumstances in life that we may encounter that are overwhelming beyond the capabilities of any human being. I imagine being overcome by tidal waves, being the target of a multitude of arrows, or just fighting a warrior who is far superior to me. This is why I train and study. When the wave comes I will draw my sword and run at it and show that it may overwhelm me, even swallow me, but never defeat my spirit.

Peace be with you all,
Christopher Young
