Dear AikiWeb members,

I'm new here and I'm previliged to be with you guys in this forum, I'm 36 years old business owner, living in Kuwait.

Been researching about Aikido for the past year until I heard that there is a worthy Sensei in the country, Hiroaki Izumi..

I decided to put Aikido in my busy schedule because of Sensei Izumi, for I've seen in him the thing that made me like Aikido!

This is my new path of life and I would like to have my own Dojo later on (doesnt mean i will be training) But i will be needing professional traditional Hombo Dojo style sensei.

Looking forward to participate in this forum and learn from the best.

Welcome Tawfiq, it's a real pleasure to see how aikido spreads around the world. While many people that don't occur to us may be extraordinary teachers, it's wonderful that you've found someone and something in it that resonates with you.

Keep in touch,

I would like to echo Selin's sentiments: it's great to see how aikido transcends national and cultural barriers.

I hope you persist with your studies, and one day set up your own dojo, Tawfiq.

All the best
