Not sure how Aikido has given you a sense of Death Nick, but perhaps that is another thread!!

Also, it has provided a sense of belonging. To a world wide family.
The budo do not deal with facing death as much as the bugei and bujutsu, in which a mistake meant death. I suppose through my interest in Aikido, rather than Aikido itself, has given me a reason to celebrate life but not forget death.

Also, I feel that I've learned some great things about myself since joining- and this worldwide family is one I'm happy to be a part of .
