Newb in the Aikido world :-)


First i do hope you can read what i write, my english is better spoken than written. :-)

Im a guy from the wonderfull coutry Denmark, (home of the vikings)

I just startet Aikido and Iaido a couple of weeks ago.
Im a kind of inpations so the start is very tough, cause, i feel a little stupid, in the classes, because, im nit that good, :-)

Well, i work in the Danish army, Mech infantry, as a group medic.
Ive been to Helmand province(Afghanistan) from feb - aug 2009. so had a nother look at life after that, and that why i started Aikido and Iaido, lifes just to short to NOT do it...

Im happely married, to a great danish blonde, that just dosnt get my enthusiasm to these artforms, and my absesion to the Japanese Katanas.

So hope i can get a lot of info, and meet a lot of people that shaere my love for Aikido.

Johnny D Danielsen.. :-)
