I'm a third year university student in Scotland and started Aikido last week. I've really enjoyed it so far and hope to do so for a very long time! I did Karate for three years when I was at high school in Italy, but haven't practised any martial arts since.
I ordered a book
on Aikido last night (it was really hard to find for a reasonable price); if you can recommend any other books, websites, etc., let me know.
Other than that, I'm really glad to be here! I hope to learn a lot.
