:cool: Hello, my name is Steve. I am 69,retired.I just started aikido(ASU) in June 2016.I was looking for exercise and self defense classes to stay active, I found both in aikido. I was very intimidated at first, doing techniques with mostly high kyu students & a lot of black belts. I am always very amazed & impressed though that everyone takes time to stop and explain technique to me.

Welcome. You'll find a fair number of us "geriaikidoka" hereabouts :-)
The best way to learn is with partners who are not also beginners - somebody has to know what to do! - and we all learn different, valuable things in that situation. Win-win.
