Hi everyone,
I am a 4th degree black belt in tae-kwon-do and have a great deal of experience kickboxing. I had several amature bouts when I was younger. I started in Aikido around 8 months ago and despite all my martial arts experience it is like starting from scratch. Aikido is far more difficult to learn than tae-kwon-do or boxing and is much more beautiful. I am enjoying the challenge and I am finally starting to learn to :"relax" enough for my techniques to be at least somewhat effective. It is obvious to me that one cannot learn to be profecient in Aikido in a year or two. It obviously takes many years but I look forward to the Journey...Gregg J. Block
