Hello to everyone from the uk, my name is mark and i have been training in ki-Aikido for 18 months, started at the age of 54yrs so it should be an interesting journey. Any advice for some starting at my age would be most appreciated.

Hi Mark,

Welcome to AikiWeb. You might want to re-post your concerns in a forum outside of the Introductions forum for more feedback.

Hi Mark,
I started when I was 44 and that was 4 1/2 yrs ago, also in Ki Aikido. Just enjoy the training and know your limitations. I have a herniated disc and that is one of the reasons I train. I've had some "accidental but not so brutal advanced ukemi" but I'm still good.

Hi Mark,
Yes we do have great teachers here. It's under the Northwest Ki Federation with Calvin Tabata sensei who travels and do seminars there at the UK.
