Hello I joined this site a little while ago and was reminded to post an introduction so here goes...
I started Ki-Aikido at a Parks and Rec class in 1979 and trained for about 3 years until I graduated from college, got married and started a job that was on swing shift all at once. I was hired as an officer at the county jail and after finishing the Corrections Officers Academy I resumed training in 1989. This was another P & R class (Affiliated with Seattle Ki Society) that lost it's sponsorship with one city, started over at another, lost that one too and then we practiced for a while at the training center at a nearby prison. The instructor works there. We lost that home too and I recently realized it's been almost 3 years that I've been waiting for our group to start up again.
So I've decided to start training again after I get into better shape. I have an arm injury that needs to heal first and I want to loose some weight before I start again. My goal is next January. I've joined this forum for support and I just like reading and discussing aikido.
