Howdy All,

I'm Gene Skiffington. I'm a 42-yr-old family physician. My wife, two kids and I began training in September. We study Niho Goshin Aikido at The Dojo in Washington, PA ( www.dojo-arts.com ).

I'm sore because I was lucky enough to be an Uke as one of the students tested for shodan (and passed). Now I know what "core muscles" are because they all hurt. :p

It works that way sometimes... He gets the black belt and you just get black and blue...

Welcome aboard.
