In the begining there was no one reason to my begining Aikido, rather a number of reasons, one of them being able to level the field in case of conflict. In my opinion Aikido achieved this for me in a very short period by pointing out to me how very ordinary I was in terms of defence, co-ordination, calmness and the like, it gave me a very clear picture of how unprepared for confrontation I really am.

The other reason I wanted to begin Aikido was to roll around on the floor like a kid, learn to laugh and have fun with myself and with others and then throw them across the dojo, ya gotta love this stuff!

Peace

Greg
