Re: What Is Your Frame Of Reference For Understanding Aikido?

I was a good athlete but I didn't care about winning and losing. I had a substance abuse problem.

I hurt myself alot and let others hurt me. I needed help and I had no idea how much.

The universe picked me up and set me in Ron's class. I get other help too but aikido has helped me heal physically.I can take ideas that I learn elsewhere and put them into my life in a excercisey way. I am still getting better one day at a time. Works for me!
