About me

Introduction

Hey there! I'm kvj, a green belt in Kyokushin Karate currently training and competing in both Kumite and Kata. Based in Poland, I find solace in the discipline of martial arts and the intricacies of technology.

Tech and Coding

My tech journey is as diverse as my martial arts training. With a strong foundation in Gentoo Linux and extensive experience in Debian, Ubuntu, Arch, and Proxmox, I navigate the world of system administration with ease. I'm proficient in tools like Traefik, Docker, Git (my repositories), and WireGuard. Additionally, I host and utilize an instance of the meta-search engine SearXNG (check it out!), and have dabbled in game server hosting. My tech adventures extend to experimenting with Kubernetes and expanding my programming skills in JavaScript, C++ and C#. I'm also familiar with HTML and CSS (somewhat).

Martial Arts

As I've mentioned before, practicing Kyokushin Karate, known for its rigorous training and full-contact sparring, has been my passion for the past 3 years. Originating in Japan, Kyokushin emphasizes discipline, perseverance, and humility, shaping not only physical strength but also mental fortitude. Competing regularly in Kyokushin tournaments, where I participate in both Kata and Kumite, keeps me sharp and continuously improves my skills in both disciplines. Recently, I secured second place in Kumite at the Pomeranian Voivodeship Kyokushin Karate Tournament on April 27, 2024.

Music

I'm immersed in Nu Metal, Deathcore, and Alternative Metal, drawing inspiration from bands such as Slipknot and Slaughter To Prevail. My current focus is Blót, a nu-core project I'm spearheading with a friend, where I serve as the vocalist.
