Here we go. Caution, I am very longwinded if you've never seen one of my posts. I am starting this journal in an attempt to track my progression in Aikido. Let me start by letting everyone know who I am, as ultimately other people will read this. I am a 24 year old theatre manager, who is going to college for... well, I don't really know yet. I am also married, no kids, and my wife has a Masters degree in social work (she runs a pre-independant living program for juvenile girl delinquents.) I started Aikido about 6 months ago, maybe a bit longer, and really feel quite new at it. I am in a relatively small Dojo, about 10-15 people per practice on a week-night and about 5-10 on a saturday morning early class. My instructor is great, even thought he's rated a first Dan, he is lightyears beyond anyone in class. There are a decent mix of gradings in class, with the two highest members getting closer to black belt and everyone else in between somewhere. We are associated with the ASU, and our style is pretty physical, but not devoid of the spiritual element. Anyway, I'm just still in that honeymoon period in my Aikido, where everything feels so fresh and incredible and eye-opening. I hope that doesn't end, but somehow I think it must. I should also mention that I think Aikido has made me more spiritually aware, as I used to consider myself quite the atheist, but now I think it has more to do with how one defines "God." At any rate, I'll post something interesting one of these days, I just wanted to get the intro off to a start.

Later,
