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.
