Just a quick note to say "hello" and introduce myself. I started my Aikido training on Guam under Benjamin Garlarpe Shihan, Ki Society in 1990, after a couple of years I moved to NYC to train at NY Aikikai. After six months, life got in the way and I did not resume my training until 2001 at Center City Aikido in Philadelphia under Donovan Waite Shihan. After three years life yet again got in the way and I was side-lined until 2012. A light bulb went off and I dropped everything and ran back to Center City (which is now Old City Aikido). I have been training smart every chance I get and I have not looked back. As such, I am looking forward to sharing and exchanging ideas.
