Hi all :)

Hi all,

I am new to Aikido and Martial arts in general and have been training in Shodokan Aikido for about a month. I live near Himeji in Japan and originally come from Wellington, New Zealand. Looks like there is a good community here so I hope to learn from you all and share some experiences.
Yoroshiku!

-Sarah Moon.

Re: Hi all :)

Another one of Peter's minions has joined. His army is growing

Welcome aboard, enjoy the training, and if Peter gets a glassy-eyed stare in his eyes and starts talking about about world domination again, just give him a smack in the back of the head. He'll be fine in a few minutes.

Re: Hi all :)

Hey I can't believe I missed the entry of a new Shodokan member on Aikiweb. This is what happens when one trains too much and surfs less.

Welcome to the forums Sarah, I hope you enjoy it here. One more person to speak up for truth, justice, good beer, tanto randori and competition in Aikido.

Now we got somebody to give us the scoop on what happens behind the scenes at Himeji Shodokan as well. muahahhhahahahha

Peter, you must be thrilled.

Where's Ian, he must be losing count of the number of Shodo thugs here (not that you are a thug Sarah).

As Sarah is a newbie she is only a thug by association. As her training in thuggery continues she will undoubtedly attain the position of a shodo-thug proper.

"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."

Re: Hi all :)

Thanks for the warm words of welcome
I now feel well and truely at home amongst the 'Thugs of Aikiweb'!

Larry - I have only two things to add to your list of "truth, justice, good beer, tanto randori and competition in Aikido" - Ofuro (bathing) after practice and sushi! Obviously these rank well below things like truth and justice in the grand scheme of things.

Ahh yes, bathing after practice, a great but foreign concept. I think I need some more training time in that since my beer waza practice (after class) often acts as a deterrent to good post-class Ofuro waza practice.

Sushi waza happens like once a month here, it's pretty expensive but is really good. I even think Shishida Shihan liked it. Of course I have to get over a bad experience I had with some home made sushi (trying to cut costs) before I can take Ukemi for good sushi again.

As a matter of fact I think I'm going into Wasabi withdrawal symptoms these days.

Have fun training.
