I'm a new member of this site, just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Erik, and I am a fairly new student of aikido (since April) at Water Oak Aikikai in North Carolina, and am having the time of my life with it! :D (Although I'm discovering that taking up a sport after age 40 presents certain... challenges :rolleyes: )

I am taking classes with my 7-year-old daughter and we are both enjoying it a great deal.

Hi Erik,
Welcome to AikiWeb.
I started three years ago at 43. I know about the challenges and I expect to continue on for 43 plus more years.

I always say that this is the beauty or the martial arts. You can start (and even compete, depending of the style) at any age. I started Aikido one year ago, at forty five.
Welcome to you and your daughter to the merry gang of Aikiweb!;)
