Hi guys,

I am an Aikido teacher at a high school in Japan. Several of my students are in an intensive English class and will study abroad in Australia next year. Would anyone be interested in trading emails or letters with them? It might be fun and would help their English a lot.

18 years old, training for two years. 5th kyu...however I'm having trouble finding a USAF dojo in Buffalo.

So my training has been temporarily halted.

Though all types of schools are not the same, your training shouldn't stop. Find a different kind of school for a while. Look into Iwama, ASU, or any of the 10 other types of Aikido schools. I'm sure there is even a few independent schools out there.

Hope this gets you moving! (c;

16, male, 4 months training in the last 7, have not yet taken a test

11-01-2004, 09:27 PM
Quite a lot of young people then, which is always nice to know. ;D I am 16 in about two weeks and by then I would have done Aikido for about 2 months. Therefore, I am a white belt if that is of any surprise. :P

At the moment, I am not currently attending any classes at my dojo for safety reasons for about a week. D:

I've been attending seminars at UF up in Gainesville for several years but don't think I've met you or anyone from your dojo. Do you guys attend the seminars held at UF?

I'm 17 and I've been doing aikido for about...7 months now and I'm a 6th kyu.
