Re: What has aikido caused you to do?

  • Start a dojo in Rio Vista, CA. This town is too small, in theory, to support a dojo, but I'm working on defying the odds.
  • Drag my wife and kids to the dojo four times a week.
  • Spend lots of money on uniforms, weapons, books, videos, etc.
  • Give up some bad habits.
  • Start some bad habits.
  • Rethink my software development career (I'm not a fan of the Silicon Valley Work Ethic).

My wife just went through a weekend-intensive introduction to Aikido. It's a brutal way to start Aikido, but she seems to have actually enjoyed it. At least now she's training herself rather than just being a taxi for the kids.
