I started Aikido curious as to the demands, and how they would differ from Karate. I loved it. I Started on kinda half assed just trying to see what it was about. Then got somewhat addicted. Finally I began burning out and developed an interest in how I could sharpen my mind and mental focus outside of class, then bring that to class and see how good I'd do.

Test time came round and I was impressed that though I was not coming to class as often as I thought I should I left proud of how well I felt I did, and the feedback I had.

Moved away from Winnipeg in November 2006, and I haven't been able to train in class since, though I've been F@#$ing around with friends, and pursuing aspects I believe are of value. Anyways I've come to a position where I can go back and will be in July 2007, new teacher-a lady, new students who are unfamiliar.

So I've had some time to digest what I HAVE done and what is needed of me to get good, and I think I'll be much more prepared for whats needed to get good, and how much of a benefit Aikido is to me, cause' F!#K I miss it.

July 1st will be my first time back, and, I don't know I think it might be fun to come in under the disguise of a fresh newbie bearing a bottle of Sake for the Sensei and take a class before introducing myself as a soon to be 4th kyu. Anyway Ta! H
