Hello everyone,

I've been lurking for faaaaaar to long. Time to put a stop to it. ;)

My name is Mark Ainslie, I've been practicing Aikido on and off since 1990-ish (can't remember exactly when to be honest) under Fran Turner sensei at Shugyo Dojo. I took a huge leave of absence to focus on career, family, personal stuff and returned to training a couple of years ago. It's nice to be back.

Also (because apparently I'm a masochist and I like to complicate my life) :) I'm a member of a Takamura ha Shindo Yoshin ryu study group here in Toronto. I just came back from a Toby Threadgill sensei seminar last week held by Jim Sorentino sensei's dojo in Virginia. What a fine bunch of folks they are too.
