Kim Here. I was a long ago AikiWeb member, who wandered off and slipped away... (Really just got very busy and couldn't find time to come in here.) However, I decided to re-register and do my best to drop-in when I can.
So a wee bit about me. I live in Western Massachusetts I train at Berkshire Hills Aikido and currently am a 4th degree black belt. I have been training since 1997 and love it! Never gets boring! My teachers and dojo mates are fun and bring a lot of commitment and joy to the mat.
I teach both self defense and aikido at a local community college and run a small aikido class on my own as an auxiliary school to the main dojo.
What else? I'm legally blind, play the harmonica, romp off to New Mexico to hang in the desert every so often and when home in my own kitchen,make some hot damn salsa!
