I just wanted to say hello and give a short introduction. I am new to Aikido and this website. I'm from Kentucky obviously and i practice, Ronin Bushido Aikido. My Sensei is Mike Stapleton and i train out of Frankfort, where a black belt test is going to be given for Nidan and Shodan this saturday the 23rd.
Anyhow i'm 17 and really enjoy Aikido. I'm glad to be one of you.:D

Hey Tony! I practice at the Ronin Bushido Dojo in Winchester. I'm just starting out too, but hopefully I will earn my yellow belt soon. I want to go check out the Nidan and shodan test in Frankfort, but I'm really busy. My Sensei Craig is testing there. Well anyway, It's good to hear from someone from Ronin Bushido! Hope to meet you soon.

Hi guys,

I'm a Ronin Bushido student at the Lexington dojo. Just thought I'd say Hi. God Bless.

Welcome to the club. It's nice to see more of our guys on Aikiweb. It's a great forum for general Aikido information, and there are alot of nice(very informed) folks to ask questions.

I was a member of the Un of Kentucky Aikido club for years and years until I moved to Ft Worth. I think Ronin was just getting started around that time. Good to see you guys fluorishing!
