Hi everyone,

Just a quick post to introduce myself.

I'm in the UK, 44 years old and new to Aikido though I did study Taekwondo for several years, a long time ago, and in another life!

In my work (I'm a mental health nurse) I have to undertake training in 'control of violence and aggression' and in 'breakaway' techniques. It was obvious that many of our techniques were Aikido based and since I have had a life long interest in the East and in martial arts I decided to take it further and look for some training.

I found a great club in my area which teaches Iwama style Aikido and have been studying for four weeks now. It's great fun and they're a great bunch of people.

Thats about it folks.
