Hello everyone my name is Charles and I'm new to Aikido and martial arts period, but I Love it! and wish I had started earlier in life when I was younger. I'm a lot older then your average student but Love it, I was way out of shape but in just 6 weeks I have made a whole lot of progess and i'm getting back into shape. I've met a whole lot of good and positive people who make me feel younger, healthier, and a more positive outlook on things.
All of them have helped me in my techniques which I still have a ways too go on, but I'm a whole lot better then when I started at first. I just couldn't seem to get soem of the easiest and simplest things that people did with ease, why it looked so easy and then something that should be real hard I picked up on quick and we all have had some great laughs about it and lots of fun.
Take care everyone and be well,

Hi Charles,

Welcome to AikiWeb and thank you for your introduction! Nice to see someone in Korea trying out aikido. Several years back, I won a $1 bet when I produced proof that there was at least one aikido dojo in Korea!
