Hello everyone! I am newly registered on AikiWeb, but I have been practicing Aikido for a little over 4 years now. Since I have been enjoying reading the forums, I thought it was only fair to jump in. (Plus, I was just itching to put in my 2 cents on a couple of threads.)

I suppose I was inspired to register as I have been going through some life changes and have found much support in my local dojo. I have also found that it is lots of fun to visit other dojos when I travel (and when I can make the time!), and I have been pleasantly surprised at how warm and welcoming I have found others who practice our art.

So, thanks to you all for your interesting posts inspiring me to join, and I hope to have the opportunity to visit dojos in the future where I "know" someone from AikiWeb!

Hi Jennifer,

Welcome to the AikiWeb Forums and thank you for your introduction! I'm sure it won't be long before you meet and train with someone else from AikiWeb!

Hello! I'm also from California, although I'm presently at college in Minnesota. I'm from the north (Bay Area: Lafayette, specifically). I might be at the Enbukan in southern California at some point over break...tragically, it's the only Yoshokai dojo in California.
