Re: Should I get in better shape before starting?

I hardly did anything to stay fit in 25 years before I started aikido in 2010, but this was not an issue when I started. Some students can run ten miles and some cannot even run a quarter mile.

I did get fitter from doing aikido, but in my experience, aikido is more about coordination than about fitness.
