I am Bill Little. I began practicing aikido in Victoria, BC, about 35 years ago, after hearing about it it in a philosophy course on deep ecology taught by Alan Drengson at the University of Victoria. I did not settle down to practice regularly until 15 years ago and it took 11 years of focused training to achieve Shodan. My Sensei is Mike Chin who founded SanShuKan dojo in Victoria, and his Sensei was Kawahara Shihan, who was also our Canadian Aikido Federation technical director. I have been enjoying the AikiWeb for several years, especially the historical articles about O'Sensei's life and the origins of aikido. I am a sociologist and until recently was teaching at UVic (I am currently an OpenLearning Faculty Member at Thomson Rivers University). I have been writing about aikido and martial arts studies largely in a theoretical vein on the theme of embodied knowledge and the meaning of practices of the self like aikido in the contemporary conduct of life. For those interested you can see "Putting the Harm Back into Harmony" in Martial Arts Studies (2018): https://mas.cardiffuniversitypress.o....18573/mas.57/

Or there are a few shorter efforts on William Little's Sociology Web Pages: https://williamlittlesociology.wordpress.com/
