6th Kyu For Life

Hey everybody-

My name's Tom. I've been doing Aikido for only about two years now, mostly at Oberlin Aikikai (http://www.oberlin.edu/stuorg/Aikido) at Oberlin College (http://www.oberlin.edu), but also at Utah Aikikai (http://www.utahaiki.com). Currently, I'm a junior at the college here, my major is East Asian Studies with a minor in Religion, and I'm also the Treasurer of Oberlin Aikikai and a Sound Engineer.
On that note, I have a bunch of reading to do for my class(es) on Buddhism, so see ya later, bye!

Hey Tom welcome! I've heard of your dojo, always wanted to visit but haven't made it there yet. I'm in North West Ohio, Toledo area, about an hour or two from Oberlin. If your ever in the neighborhood give us a look up, we love having guests! Take care.

Hi Tom,

I just got the chance to have lunch and train with Jim Klar Sensei on Saturday afternoon! You're lucky to have him heading up Oberlin Aikikai!

By the way, I noticed your nickname. I was attempting to be a "2nd kyu for life", but Hreaha Sensei forced me to move on, so don't get too content at 6th kyu. You'll be testing for shodan before you know it! ;-)
