Senior Aikido

Hi and thank you for having this site.

I started my Aikido journey a little over 3 years ago at a local Farmers Market demo. I was 58 years old and it was love at first sight. However as the OLD saying goes spirit is willing...and in my case it had been over 35 years since I was competitive Judo player. NOW which is all that really matters I am more in infatuated with this Aikido Martial Art Dance. Each day I must roll, do technique and enjoy the process and not seek perfection.

Sincerely,

Tom

Re: Senior Aikido

Very cool, welcome! I was a late starter as well (48), I'm 52 now. I missed out on starting earlier because my blacksmith teacher didn't tell me he was a senior instructor for Aikido for 2 years before telling me to grab his wrist one day in the blacksmith shop. I did a few ukemi on the concrete floor a few times and was hooked!
