My name is David Skaggs from Youngstown, Ohio in the United States.
I started Aikido in 1984 at Youngstown State University under
Sensei Larry Hlywa and continued until 1990 under Sensei Chuck
Cycyk. Because of a work injury to my right knee I had to stop.
A couple weeks ago I started again under Sensei Michael Gelum of
Shizuka na Arashi Dojo in Warren, Ohio. It feels great to be practicing again even with my Rice Krispy knees ( they snap, crackle, and pop now) and not so flexible back.

Welcome back, and onto Aikiweb, too :)

As for the knees, ice and ibuprofen, maybe some of that new-fangled glucosamine.
