Hello From Utah
Hey everyone! I've been reading this forum for a while now, and thought I'd go ahead and start posting. I was introduced to Aikido about a year and a half ago by a very close friend. He and I met at work and became good friends very quickly. One day he gave me a copy of The Art of Peace and I was instantly intrigued, so I watched some videos online and determined that this was the martial art for me. Upon hearing this my friend gave me his uniform and I will always be grateful for his assistance. Before this I had studied Pa Kua Chuan, and karate, but neither of them clicked with me and I never felt like I belonged. I ended up joining Salt Lake Aikikai after looking around at the other dojos. All the people there are really great and I truly feel that I have found my place.
