Kurai started fighting at Centrawoven in Warrensburg, MO, then called Barad Dur in September of 2004, when he was fourteen. Originally a fencing student at the local university, he grew bored with the extremely structured style and was looking for something more when a fellow student told him about the local Dagorhir realm. He tried it and was hooked. The rest, as they say, is history.
