At a young age I took tae kwan do for about 2 years. I am now 49 and married I have a 14 year old daughter with downs syndrome and last year my wife suffered a stroke at age 41. I take care of them both, I am filled with stress and anger and worry, I want to regain inner peace and control my emotions as I had when I took martial arts lessons before so long ago. I guess you could say I want to get centered and steady again.... I believe Aikido to be a method to achieve inner peace, along with a great way to get in shape once again.

Charles, you have a lot on your plate, and hopefully some support/respite in place to help you. One thing about aikido is that many of us find you can bow in feeling achy, worried, tense, distracted...and the training starts and you bow out standing tall and smiling. I hope you can experience this!

Hi Charles,

Welcome to AikiWeb and thank you for your introduction. I hope you find an aikido dojo near you that can provide you with what you're looking for.
