Why Aikido ? you might call it pure luck.
After years for changing hobbies, which all started with great enthusiasm and eventually died silently, I started looking into martial arts.
I went to a Dojo near were I live, there I met Shian.
From the first sight of him - I almost run away shouting.
You see, he is a big man - physically speaking (and now I can honestly say - he is also a great man in all aspects).
Shian said they are teaching both seido-karate and Aikido.
I asked him the difference between these two,
so he called a student to come in the office and showed me 2 techniques how to disable an attacker,
then he asked me if I saw the difference. I said "sure" (it looked exactly the same...).
It was Monday, and Monday was Aikido class.
I stayed for a trial class. I couldn't stop ever since.
Might as well call it love...
