Hi, just introducing myself. In my teenage years (quite a while ago now ;) ) I did judo, karate and hapkido. I always wanted to give aikido a go but never quite got around to it. I haven't had any involvement in martial arts for over 25 years now, but the underlying interest has always been there and so I am wondering about trying aikido. I am 50 years of age and think that a 'gentle' martial art such as aikido would be best for me physically at this stage. However unfortunately I work shift work which can make it quite difficult for me to get evening classes at times.

So I have joined AikiWeb in order to learn more and hopefully get some questions answered. Will probably post a question pretty much straight away!

Cheers, David

Hi David,

Welcome to AIkiWeb. I hope you find a good aikido dojo near where you are.

Thanks for the welcome. I am currently exploring what dojos are near me and when I have a reasonable list I will pay them a visit. Unfortunately some of the dojos that sound really good are not very close to home - but my search is in the early stages yet.
