Hello From West Virginia

I wanted to say hi to everyone here and to thank the admin/mods for a nice site. I have just started Aikido about 2 months ago and I am enjoying every minute of it. I am looking forward to practicing this fine art for many many years and to get my kids involved once they are of age. I look forward to learning a lot from my sensei, sempai, and via the interesting material on the sites I visit as well as some books that I have to read.

Aye. It's so beautiful here, it's not only built by God but He's right next to us.

It's also known as Almost Heaven, West Virginia. Another apt nickname.

We've gone by Wild and Wonderful for a few years, and that's okay.

Unfortunately, our current gov thought to pimp us out to tourists and came up with a state slogan of "Open for Business". All that's missing is a red light. *sigh*

Re: Hello From West Virginia

Jun thank you for the welcome!

LOL... yeah whatever you call I call it home. I have lived in several other states including the state of confusion and for some odd reason I keep coming back here... I am very glad that I was directed into the dojo in which I have found a lot of fun and look forward to each session.

Mark I'll see you monday.
