Hello everyone,

I am just starting aikido at age 62 in a small class in Alabama. Any advice for a complete novice?

Thanks,
Mike

Welcome!

Advice: take it easy at first (both with stretching and practising), open yourself up to learning whatever version of the technique is being shown at that moment, and avoid shikko and suwari-waza as much as you can get away with :)

And have fun!
