Dear Aikido practitioners,
It`s a pleasure to join the Community. Name's Vladimir. I`m from Russia. You know, I`d been learning some other martial arts a bit, when I was a kid, but Aikido always was something special to me. It`s kind of hard to explain, but I`m sure, You understand. It`s not like I`m ready to dedicate my whole life to it, but I seriously want to be a part of it.
So, with this in mind I came to one of my local dojos a couple of years ago. Spent there around six months and left with a feeling of complete misunderstanding of what was happening there. Looked great when somebody was showing it. But when I tried to repeat - I simply couldn't.
Now, since I`m a very stubborn person, I`m back to Aikido again. I`m attending Gakumon Dojo (http://www.aikido-russia.ru/) (curator: Christian Tissie) in Moscow and this time it seems like I start to pick up something. I hope it`s going to be good this time. Thank You.
Welcome to AikiWeb and thank you for your introduction.
