Hi From Boca Raton FL.
I just started back with Aikido after a long time away. I live in Boca Raton, Florida now used to live in the UK and did all my training with Shihan Peter Brady and other Visiting Sensei at many a weekend course and summer school. I'm very grateful for such a great teacher giving me an excellent foundation in the art.
My Shodan was from Chiba Sensei back in the early 90's and I was fortunate enough to spend a small amount of time training and sleeping on the floor of the old San Diego dojo.
I'm excited to be back and apart from some ring rustiness and fitness level I was surprised just how much is still deeply embedded in my cellular memory.
Hope to meet you folks out on the mat some time soon.
