My name is Tom, I've been following the forum for about a year, practicing aikido for about 8 months and I started making posts a couple of months ago. I never did properly introduce myself though, so while I know a bit of some of the regulars here, most of you probably have no idea who I am.
I train at the University of Guelph, in Canada. To call my "dojo" a dojo is a bit of a stretch, we're more of a "club"; we practice in the wrestlers' room, both our senseis have other full time jobs, and on some occasions, particularly now in the summer, our class consists of 3 or 4 people. I must say I'm used to being quite relaxed during practice, in terms of etiquette, so maybe that's why I just walked in here and started talking like that.
Again, sorry for the lack of etiquette and thanks for taking the time to read this!
