I started to come here because I had no way of learning about budo/aikido save for the internet during my recovery from a minor surgery. I was on leave and wanted to read and learn about the art I was going to start when I returned.
now I am back on my feets again, training and studying, and I am finding this place still serves as a great place to learn.
Granted some of the posting seems sorta silly, like the whole " I dont do aikido because of this/that/someother reason, but I wanted you all to know" posts. but aside from silly bickering, I find this place an invaluable forum to learn and grow.
it makes me think about things
