Why are you taking Aikido?
- I prefer this martial art to others for a few reasons
-I like the idea of circularity/sphericity and joining with an attack rather than opposing it
-I like the idea of minimal force
-I like the close contact required to develop sensitivity(to attacker's intentions)
-I like the idea of developing inner ki
-Also, I'm part Japanese in background and I prefer exposure to the culture.

What do you want out of it?
-develop control over mind and body
-develop stronger mind/body connection
-develop self-confidence
-develop life-long habit of fitness
-develop self-defense skills

What purpose do you want it to serve?
-to improve myself physically, mentally and spiritually
