I was forced into trying, at my school, Intro to Aikido was offered as a elective. It was the only class opposite the theater troop that I was in. So, if I did theater, I had to do Aikido. I have to say that I was very apprehensive and a little nervous about this class, I thought that I would hate it.
In the end, only about three of the fifteen students loved the class (although every one else was really looking forward to the class). After the semester (and the Aikido class) was over, I continued to study Aikido about three times a week, and really love it!
