My name is Tim. I've been doing martial arts for a number of years. My main style is can-ryu jiu jitsu taught by Sensei Hiscoe in Ottawa, Canada. This style is more akin to japanese jiu jitsu with a heavy emphasis on practical applications, self protection, and police tactics. Since moving to the other side of the country I've been trying to find a school that i like but have had some difficulty.
I've trained at a few other jiu jitsu dojos but they didn't do it for me. I've been fooling around with judo for about a year, but the club is more focused on the competition side of judo rather than the martial art.
I'm going to my first aikido class tonight. Any advice?
Welcome to AikiWeb and to aikido.
