My short introduction
My name is Emmanouil, I'm 31 years old from Greece, currently living in London. I haven't yet started the practice of Aikido but I am about to! I have had an accident three years ago, wherein I fell and caused my T5 and T6 vertebrae to sustain a mild wedge deformity each. I'll be having a new MRI in a few days but my doctor (a sports medicine physician and orthopedist) says I shouldn't worry about it.
I really want to get the green light because, having read and researched quite a few things about this lovely martial art, I do believe it will help me become a better person overall, help me become a more relaxed individual, one's who's receptive to others and their needs and one who really wants to find his way in life. I feel detached and lost, in a sense and lacking a sense of purpose.
Well, that's all I had to say. Thank you for reading this and I hope to join a dojo very soon and embrace my new me!
