I would like to say hello to all Aikidoka. I've been lurking around this
site for the past 6 years and have found this site quite informative and educational in terms of the quality and experience of all Aikidoka's (kyu & dan). This site, in conjunction with my regular training, is an outstanding supplement to one's development and understanding of what Aikido is/isn't. I would like to thank all of you who have taken time to share their knowledge/wisdom and hope that as a new member (Shodan) that I may inspire (as I've been inspired) readers to dig deep within to become the best that he/she may. I look forward to our engaging and frank discussions of Aikido!!
