No, but I speak a number of languages, German from school, and Spanish from working in a kitchen. I don't speak German very often anymore though, simply because of a lack of need. Someone asked me the other day, "Sprechen Sie Deutsch?" (Do you speak German?) and I replied out of reflex, "Un Poco" (a little bit, but that's Spanish). We both got a little laugh out of it but I demonstrates my lack of mastery over both languages. That's what I want to avoid.

Thank you for your advice. I think I'll do the yoga/aikido things and that'll be it for a few years. I still want to do Kendo but I'm a fairly patient person and I'll wait until I'm certain I can handle it all.
