Hello! I am a member of Cleveland Aikikai and have been studying Aikido for nearly a year, making rather slow progress, but progress nonetheless! One of my major frustrations is that I cannot train as much as I would like to as I have kids at home who are still young enough to need Mom around a lot. I can usually get to the dojo twice a week and I cherish the time that I can spend training.

I was drawn to Aikido because this discipline forces me to encounter everything that is difficult for me regarding dealing with conflict and the resolution of conflict. It is one thing to be focused and relaxed while sitting quietly alone in meditation, quite another to remain focused and relaxed when someone is trying to slice your head in two or punch you in the gut - either literally or metaphorically! Aikido challenges me on every level, and I guess that's why I love it.
