:) Hi One and All

My name is James/Jim/Jimbo (take your pick). I'm 33, Australian, male,happliy married and work as a senior graphic designer for a Brisbane based PR company. Outside of work I enjoy drawing, sketching, doodling, cartooning, illustrating which I hope to one day turn into a career.

I have only just begun my journey of discovery in Aikido with only 4 lessons under my belt. The specific style I'm learning is called Yuishinkai Aikido and the founder is Master Koretoshi Maruyama.
I must admit that I'm daunted by the number of styles that are taught and thought that Aikido was just Aikido. If anyone can shed some light on the differences between styles I'd appreciate it.

In the next week or so - I hope to also begun learning Iaido. I brought a set of Samurai swords when in Japan last year and feel that is a waste to have only as a display item. There is an energy in them that I feel needs to be harnessed.

Well that's who I am and where I'm at.

I look forward to meeting each and everyone.

Maybe someone else will convey the differences. Heck I would not know where to begin!
