Just wanted to introduce myself.

I have been training in aikido since 1981-82 (memory is starting to fade) USAF since 1992. Absolutely love going to seminars, camps, and visiting other dojos when traveling. I meet so many great people in aikido! It is wonderful to be able to practice such a terrific art and to be part of this community.

Hi everyone,

I started in 1991 with ASU up here in Houghton, MI, but grew up in Hesperia, MI. Going to my first summer camp in the rockies (next) week and I'm really fired up about it.
(so fired up that I lost a week in my mind)

peace out,

Hi Jim,

The rockies, great place for summer camp! Have a terrific time there.

Going to my first summer camp in the rockies this week and I'm really fired up about it.
If you're talking about the Summer Camp in the Rockies (http://www.boulderaikikai.org/sc/), I thought I'd pipe up and say it starts on the 28th -- not this weekend.

In any case, if you're going to be there at the above camp, I hope to see you there...

Welcome fellow Michiganians,

If you ever find yourself in the southwest corner of the state (Battle Creek or Kalamazoo) you're always welcome at one of our dojo.


p.s. Hey Edward, where do you study in Grand Rapids?
