Hello to all fellow postees.
I figured i'd introduce myself since i'll prolly be frequenting this site quite a bit in the future with LOADS of questions for you all. I am formally starting my Aikido training tonight...(well maybe not formally in the correct sense of the word since i'll be taking my classes at a YMCA
but hey i don't have any dojos near me so i'll just have to make due
A friend of mine has been taking aikido for about a year now and i went to a class to observe and the residing sensei looked at me and said (not kidding) "Hell, your here aren't you? You might as well join in." Well, a bruised wrist and a sore back later i was hooked. I love the philosophy of a defense only art(i'm not a violent person) .
I hope to get to know the lot of you and hopefully you will be able to help me further myself in my quest for personal fulfillment.
