Re: Styles of Aikido - which is right for me?

To be honest, I don't know if I'd train for much more than 2'ish years. Chances are that once I reach something up around Shodan, I'd want to change to another martial arts, something like Judo/Krav Maga/Aiki-jutsu/BJJ or such, something very different again. I'm not sure I'm interested in overly specializing in one specific martial art in the long run, but you never know

A shodan in aikido in two years....??

Zazen emptiness
Sitting under the moon
Mosquitoes whine in glee
