I also want to give a short introduction to myself. I have started Aikido only recently in May this year and have never done any martial art before. My background is more football (soccer) related, so to me it is very hard to learn Aikido. But I enjoy it very much and try hard to do my best and eventually get better.
I train at sensei Bodo Rödel, who is a direct student of Christian Tissier Shihan. In Febriary next year I have the chance to travel to Tokyo and train at the beginners classes of Hombu Dojo.
