Thank you for posting the link to our website and videos. My name is Eastland not Eastman.
The training it takes to do what we do is fun. We have a good group of people that train together regularly.
I feel safer than I used to before I started training 24 years ago. That is what matters to me.
Very sorry for mangling your name. Its excellent that you enjoy the physical activity and the like minded people who come along. On your website you write that Aikido is "a journey" but not mention the martial aspect which is fair enough but then, why Aikido?
