I am Toru Hanamura.
I enjoy Aikido with Peter-san and a lot of my friends in Himeji Shodokan.
I also play Judo with Peter-san. We are learning together.
Welcome to the forum Toru-san
I hope you will find many interesting discussions and opinions here.

Thank you for your e-mail.
I started Aikido only 2 months ago.My Aikido teacher is Peter-san. I work with him at same work place. His enthusiasm was contagious.
Sometimes at work we sneak out for some practice.
I play Aikido every Tuesday and every weekend.Aikido members are nice people, it's very fun to exercise together. After practice we go to lunch.
Why did you choose Aikido from a lot of sports?
How long have you played Aikido?
Hi Hanamaru san,
Welcome to the AikiWeb Forums and thanks for your introduction!
If you feel it's easier to write/communicate in Japanese, you can always use the Japanese Forum (http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=63) here.

I was wondering what he was up to - sweating over the dictionary after work. I expect that post took the better part of an hour.
Toru-san is easy to underestimate. Shy, quiet but damm is he hard to deal with on a Judo mat.
You are right - he should try the Japanese forum although I suspect one of the attractions of Aikido is the english exposure. His background from school includes both Kendo and Judo.
