I'm new to the board, so I'm dropping by to say hello. I trained in aikido for 15 years but am unaffiliated right now. I also used to train in traditional Kodokan judo, which I loved too.
Right now, I'm trying to find a way to get into aikido again, but in a way that is more pragmatic for my needs. Lately I've been reading on this discussion forum about some of the new-old ways of training for greater power, apparently something that was lost from aikido long ago, and I hope to pursue that approach.
Best wishes and good luck to all of my brothers and sisters in aikido, and nice to meet you. :)
Welcome to AikiWeb.

Thank you! I have been lurking for a long time and finally decided to jump in.
