I see them too, Emma. When nobody's around. If I just keep looking at the monitor, maybe they won't steal my socks...

Re: Aikidoka Dating site

Although it's too late for me... I think an Aikido dating site would be great. After I got divorced I did the on-line dating thing. At one point, just to get back in practice communicating with ladies I didn't know, I did a search using the key word Aikido on Match.com...

Six names came up so I wrote them and introduced myself. I had very nice correspondence with several ladies. One of them was way cool, if I hadn't had kids in Seattle, I would have gone out of my way to meet her (she was in North Carolina). Another wrote back that she knew me from Chicago Winter camp back in the eighties!

Anyway, I finally did a search on Aikido with a local search parameter of Seattle area and one name came up. She was a beginner at my good friend Kimberly Richardson Sensei's dojo. We've been together now going on four years! An Aikido site would be fantastic as you wouldn't keep having to explain what Aikido was and why you wanted to spend so much time doing it.

True!

I imagine that if you attempt the 'speed dating' route and the question comes up "so what is this aikido then?" .... you have just blown your 3 minutes or however long it is they give you.

Re: Aikidoka Dating site

A while ago, my best friend's sister asked me what aikido was while we were hanging out on the beach. I showed her a few things, and explained what I could about it. She was interested in aikido not because she wanted to be a martial artist, but because she had seen a change in me. When she left for college, I was frustrated, angry, and without direction; I was kind of an A-hole. When she came back to town, I was completely different after only three years of aikido training. For this reason (and a few others), she found aikido to be pretty neat, and thought that I was pretty neat too.

We've been married a year now, and our daughter is a month old.

Thank you Sensei.

Re: Aikidoka Dating site

See, both George and James's stories are proof that aikido is much more than a 'martial' art

good luck to you both.
