Hello Aikidoists! I just came across this site and am exited about the opportunity to interact and gain information. I currently hold a white belt rank at Aikido Nippon Kan Dojo in Denver, CO. I'm thoroughly enjoying my experience with Aikido thus far. The philosophy and teaching style at Nippon Kan is very warm, patient, and fun. Right now I'm a sponge for all the new things I'm learning; the culture, the art, the language, the breathing. Anyway...enough babbling for now. Please let me know if there's anything more you'd like to know about me. Also, I'm looking for any recommendations for books on Aikido, Bushido, and related philosophies.
Welcome to the AikiWeb Forums and thank you for your introduction! I'd recommend using the search (http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/search.php?) function to check past discussions on the subjects that you mention.
