Hey all Aikidoka's,

My name is Shany, 24 from Israel.
I started Aikido 5 months ago, and I must say that it is fantastic, amazing, most energetic and what not!.
Since I started, I have been practicing 3 days a week, at least minimum twice a week to the least.
I enjoing every espect of , from Ukemi, to using of Weapons, techniques and blending my Ki with the other aikidokas'.

My dojo is a branch of ISTA (International School of Traditional AIKIDO) who's founded in France and now has several dojos' around the world.
Learning traditional Aikido (which was founded by O-Sensei) is amazing! but I also love to learn more, therefore I use the Internet to check out other styles, so I can develope my self even more (such style are the KI-Aikido/Society which was founded by Koichi Tohei, also I love learning about the old masters and their path to their own Aikido personality).

I love every aspect of Aikido, when it comes to Techniques, I keep trying to make them as clean as posibble as I can for my current development. When it comes to weapons, I love the boken, (Love for Katana!), though the Jo has more varieties and katas. generally its just pure fun, enjoyable and self developing art.

I'll keep learning Aikido whenever I can, I care not about the rank (currently Kyu-7 - beginner), but rather to make Aikido part of my life and use it in daily life as much as possible, (weather it is Self-Defense, Ki-Training, or spread the word about Aikido among the people I know).

So fellows Aikidokas', here I am, willing to learn from your knowledge, and read your writings.
is trully at heart to unite we all.

It sure is! no doubt about that. Everything is just pure fun, experience and learning O-Sensei's methodology and understanding of what Aikido do is all about.

I've been practicing for just shy of 11 months now, and I absolutely love Aikido as well. I'm glad that you have discovered this wonderful art also!
