Triangle I'm a keener!

Hi everyone,

I'm new to the forum and have been practicing aikido for four years. I started with Aikikai in Victoria BC, and tested for Sankyu there last autumn. A year ago I moved to the Kootenays (south-central BC) and have been attending classes at a Kenkyukai dojo. I recently gave birth to our first child (a baby girl, August 17th), and was able to get back into practice after 5 weeks of healing.

Aikido has been a physical, emotional, and moral challenge to my sense of the world. I love it!

Currently I'm working at posture and softer, more flowing ukemi which always moves to nage's centre.

Great to find this community!
