I am 37 and very new to Aikido and I am hooked. I entered a dojo in Portland a few weeks ago thinking I would just sit and observe a class. Next thing I knew I was on the mat practicing. It is very challenging for me. I tried a different martial art several years ago. Aikido is much different and more compelling. I'm very happy to be here and am trying to learn as much as I can. I look forward to getting to know you all, Susan.

Welcome, Susan, not only to aikido and aikiweb, but to the group of "geriaikidoka" those of us who came to the art late enough for friends and family to think we are nuts, but who wouldn't have it any other way!

Thank you Janet. I don't think I would have appreciated this at a younger age. The older I get, the more bold and its wonderful!

Are you a student of Gary & Ania? If so you're in good company and tell them I said hello.
