My first Aikido class was two days ago. I didn't enter blindly as I had done my research, dropped in to view a class and have had some Martial Arts training. I specifically decided to embark on this journey as (a) I believe Aikido will provide me a more thorough "Martial" experience that the other Arts tend to lack by way of sacrificing them to one end of the spectrum or another, those being "sport" and "Rambo", and (b) I work as a Correctional Officer in a Maximum Security Institution and our techniques are derrived from Aikido.

My first class was excellent as my peers were patient and helpful. I was a bit over-zealest, however, and ended up falling rather hard on my poor 37 year old shoulder that has been subject to years of abuse playing Rugby. So, it's heat, ice, Tiger Balm and a few days rest before the journey is resumed....
