New comer

Hello one and all,
New comer to the forum here, and a recent addition to a local Aikikai Aikido class. I'm very excited about the class and enjoy it, and am hoping this site will help me in recieving any usefull information I may have about questions regarding the Martial Art style. The name, if you are wondering, is an allusion to a Dark Horse Graphic Novel, and yes I do realise it meens Rabbit Protector or something simular. You have to read the comic to understand. Well, I thank you for your patience, and hope that I may find the answers to some of my many growing questions at this grand establishment.

My head hurts...

Josh, if you want to see all the nitpicks I have with you, read my aikido journal... (just kidding!)

You've already heard from me how great a resource this site is...now you can see for yourself.

Rabbit Bodyguard, I think. Usagi Yojimbo is actually awesome. It's pretty historically accurate, despite the fact that most of the characters are animals. Check out the other names of characters, most of them are named after the animal that they are... good stuff. Welcome to the board.

Usagi Yojimbo, welcome.

I have been in love with the books by Stan Sakai for many years now. They are emotive, inspired and exceptional. I am a grown man of <cough> years and still find these tales to be some of the best either written or drawn.

If anyone is interested then do not be put of by the 'furry animals' depicted in the stories. The imagery, historical integrity and sheer power of Mr Sakai's work is to be seen to be believed.

Josh, if you love the books and the ethic within then Aikido is the art for you.

Enjoy your training and never tire of falling, thats the easy part. Its getting back up on your feet knowing full well that eventually you will fall down again thats difficult.

(I've obviously been doing this too long, i'm starting to sound like Katsuichi Sensei)

Yours in Aiki
