Re: Why do you do Aikido?

I had no intention of doing aikido. My 5 year old son wanted to be a Ninja Turtle and someone I trusted said aikido was the best martial art for him. So I sat on the sidelines and thought, "I could never do that. I could never do that either." Then my son decided he was the worst one in the class, but if I joined, I would be. And I was. Rolling made me sick. I puked during or after every class. Why did I stay? I don't know. Twenty four years later I'm still here, glad to be here.
