After several months with the new group (my old group got merged with a new one, and a new teacher), I've decided to stop training in Aikido altogether. It's been a period of zero advancement in all fields including Aikido progress, Rank progress, stamina and strength progress, in other words, a big waste of time. Plus I'm not enjoying the new classes at all so I'm cutting my losses.

Hopefully I'll be starting Daito Ryu within the next month or two, there's a group opening up in my city and I've been to a demo lesson with the teacher, left with an appetite for more.

It's been almost 3 years of Aikido, I've learned a great deal, and now I feel the recent events are an opportunity to get a taste of something else. One day I'll get back to Aikido though, that's for sure.

Best of luck....enjoy your training in Daito-Ryu and note the similarities in the two arts. Perhaps you can give some informed commentary on the two companian arts at a later time. Regards Lan
