In General It took a year, but it was worth it! Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #7 New 04-29-2008 11:39 AM
Not long ago, about 1 year from today,
I entered the dojo, asking around for the name of the teacher that I talked to the day before.
I introduced my self, we talked, shook hands and walked on the Tatami for my first try in Aikido.

Since, a year has passed, which included/concluded with: Seminars, friends, new places, tests and ranks, pain and laughter.

I've trained my heart out, 3 days a week (Wish it could be more!), injuries came and went, I kept on fighting on, more techniques added to my brain list, more insights formed, my technique formed and reshaped thousand on times.

New techniques evolved and tried, some has failed some worked, oh boy Aikido is fun.

#151 is roughly the number of Aikido classed I took until today including seminars/different dojo practice (same teachers).

I've been participated in a few tests, 1 which I got my Kyu 5, and the last one, which was yesterday, earned me Kyu 4.

I now need to teach my self, the new ones, and help my teacher.
I became an Instructor, wearing Hakama.

It was a long journey, and I deserve it.
may it continue forever.
