Re: I Want That Wrist!

When I started (in the same dojo as Steve) we had 3 regular female aikidoka, two of which were the top students. This was a great environment to start training in and I was able to learn a great deal from training with them. Now the dojo has changed alot and people have come and go and it is mainly male dominated, certainly in respects to the senior students. But we still have a couple of women training who are excellent and quite a few new women who are just starting out and seem to be really enjoying things.

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.
