I will introduce myself here again as I have been gone for 2 years.

I am 33 and began studying Aikido in my early 20's. After about 3 consistent years I left the mat (unfortunate mistake) but the practice/philosophy always followed me. Tried going back to full-time practice on multiple occasions but recurring injuries always pulled me away. One thing I never did enough of was stretching (lower back nerve/muscle imbalance issue) and taking training easy in the beginning. I never let go of consistent 'Aikido warm up' and deep breathing on most mornings at home.

Back again with the goal of staying for good and training up over the next 4-5 years so that I can introduce my son to Aikido when he is of age and have it be something the two of us can train in together. This has given me a newfound sense of and desire to train again.
