My name is Stephen Shearan. I've always had an interest in martial arts since i was just a boy. For the past 4 or 5 years I have been studying Wado Ryu Karate and although its really has helped me physically, I am looking for more, and with my great thirst for knowledge, I came across a book about the teachings of O'sensei, which has really influenced my decision to want to study Aikido. As you may have already guessed I don't study Aikido at the moment, but I have finally found a local club and plan on joining very soon, so i thought i would join this forum just to get advice and to learn from people who have experience. Anyway, that's me, thanks.
Thank you for your introduction and welcome to AikiWeb.
