It occurred to me that I have many memories of Aikido and am
planning to return to practice. Some of you might be interested
in hearing from this "recycled old timer"

Today, I took a walk around the circle in our neighborhood. It
is on the top of a hill overlooking Long Island Sound. I have some
arthritis and found by using a ski pole tapping in the snowbank I
could make it all the way around comparatively rapidly and painlessly. It remains to be seen how far I'll be able to "hike' without the snow and ski pole method when it melts, later on.

My husband does weight training but has promised ikkyo
thru sankyo for New Year's as I wrote in the appropriate thread.
He is from Shotokan, has practiced some Aikido and is
currently enthusiastic about judo. His brother was a high
school wrestler and later on they practiced martial arts
together. There was a Hungarian businessman at our
YMCA who, it seems had traveled in China and taught them
kung fu. This was many years ago. I met them thirty years
ago at the Y.

I've been answering a lot of threads, so decided to get my
own blog, to reminisce and also give new impressions. Being
in a somewhat country setting connected to a rather large
city and having lived for a year and a half in Japan, some
of my observations may be of interest to you. But there
may be interruptions in the narrative, my husband also uses
this computer! Thanks for your interest, if you are reading
this entry.
