Re: Should I Re-Start Aikido?

I am not contradicting the unanimous vote to "try it" but I do think you should examine your reasons for returning. If it is only to get fit again then you might compare Aikido to the various activities that serve the same end. As a first kyu you certainly have trained enough to understand the true place that Aikido holds in the life of a serious student and so you are sure that you are training for the right reasons and rewards. You might also visit a recently started forum about training as we age. You don't want to set yourself back with an injury.
