Hey everyone,

Nice to be a new member among all of you.

I have been an aikidoka for almost 7 years, with some really nice and some hard times. But just the same as Jei (see last post) I have quit aikido for half a year now. For me it is just time to let my body be at a rest, to go for a fresh start whenever that may feel right.

I'm 24 years old now and I study Shiatsu at this moment. It is a part-time study, yet I feel an urge to spend some more time on the subject, in theory as well as in practice.

What I do love about this study is that it is about the true things in life. It works, to get you out of your mind.. ;) (for example).

Well I look forward to meeting other aikidoka from all around the world.

So, onegaishimas to everyone.

I agree with you Merel, you should try new things and see which one fits best with you. Cool to have found Aikido at such a young age, don't you think? I feel the same way.
