Re: What did spark your interest with Aikido?
I already had the martial arts addiction -- started training in 1990, I guess it would have been. When I moved to my current location, I stopped training, because while there were martial arts schools of various styles here, none of them were any good -- I kept training at my old karate dojo for as long as that was practical, but it was infrequent. Then my senseis opened up their dojo, and I could see it was a good dojo, so I said, "Okay, so now I'll start over and do aikido." It wasn't a matter that I got interested in aikido and wanted to learn it, I just wanted to continue martial arts training and this was the opportunity to do so.
