I'm completely newbie to aikido, dojo, martial arts and other stuff since there are no "schools" where I can learn them here in Greenland, but I've always wanted to learn them so I'm going to try to find someone who can teach me when I go to Japan someday;)
everyone have to start somewhere, right? So I'm allowed to be newbie lol
I once strated to go to some place where they teach kung fu but they stopped so I didn't get a chance to learn something.

Tell me what you've experianced through your training. I really want to know. ^^

Kristina,

Great title for your thread.

Apart from the fact that aikido is a lot of hard work, the most important thing I've learned is that it's simpler than most people will ever realize, so it's good to be like a baby. I wrote an article about this for the Aikido Journal blog:

and I posted some video clips of my baby's rudimentary aikido:

I thought there are only penguins in Greenland? Or was it Antartica? Just kidding Kika.

Looking at my very old atlas, it state that Greenland is part of Denmark. Is Greenland still part of Denmark or have you all achieve sovereignship already?

Boon.

Thank you very much for the links, they're very interesting and the baby is so cute!
If I get a baby someday or if I will ever get one I'll try to teach them those things :D
I'm kind of having a problem with the journal, it says that it have been moved.

Thanks again.

My point is that those things are natural responses in all children and that if you watch closely what they do, you will be able to improve your own aikido practice in many ways. In other words, aikido is closer to natural human reactions than most people will ever realize.

(and thanks for the comment on Mr. Grip! :) )

Best wishes.
