I've been lurking around this site for almost a year, since I started with Aikido.I'm a 6th kyu, and am aiming to get my 5th somewhere in the upcoming spring.
I adore aikido, and try to use it as much as possible, usually by dodging people in bussy corridors and streats, or annoying my boyfriend with wristlocks.
I'm currently studying journalism in Belgium, but I must admit that most of closer friends here are fellow aikidoka's. My other close friends are from Aruba, which is where I grew up.
I also love swimming, sailing, freediving, iceskating, dancing and gymnastics, though the last one I can't do anymore because I have problems with my back.
Other things I enjoy doing are reading, and drawing, keeping and breeding fish and watching anime.
Welcome to AikiWeb.
