Hi Niall, hope you're keeping well.
Birth Order Poll:
I am the oldest child of a family of 3 children: 1.male (me), 2.female, 3.male. -
My Dad practised Judo, in the late 1960's and was 'exposed' to Aikido whilst in the police force (although he thought it was too technical to learn, during their basic training) he did Karate for a while and brought me along - which sparked off my interest that was back in the mid 1980's and have trained ever since.
my brother and i trained in Taekwondo and karate together for years, but he didn't take to Aikido, and no longer trains.
