Hello to you all

Good morning all
Let me introduce myself, I'm Anne-Marieke (Anne will do), single mom of an 18 year old daughter and a 16 year old son.
I've just started taking lessons. The idea to do so actually came up when I met my present partner, who told me about it.
Being very curious I read a lot about aikido and the philosophy, it felt like coming home.

Hi Anne,

Welcome!

Do you train at Erik Louw's dojo by any chance?
