Hi everyone, my name is Jennifer. I started training in Aikido last June. I've also been training in Yagyu Shinkage Ryu (a Japanese sword art) for a little over two years.

I just passed my 4th kyu test on New Year's Eve, and feel like I'm starting to get a hang of certain techniques, but I'm still very much a rank beginner.

Looking forward to continuing my training, and getting to know everyone here. :)

Thanks for the welcome, guys. :)

Ron, you know both of my senseis personally? Just wondering if we've crossed paths before...

Yes, I've met both and trained a little with both. I find them to be excellent practitioners and teachers, and they have my utmost respect.

They probably think I'm a bit of a boob though... ;) I haven't been downtown in about 2 years, so if you've joined in that time frame, we probably haven't met. But please pass my regards to them, and to Karen V.W. as well.

Will do, Ron. I'm sure Karen would love to hear from you. :)

I rejoined the Yagyu group in November 2004 (I first joined in 1996), so I don't think we've crossed paths...

And...GO EAGLES!! :D
