Long time listener, First time caller.

Please allow myself to introduce myself. I've been reading these boards for a while now and decided it was time to sign up and say hi. I've had a layoff from Aikido for about 2 years. Just now getting back into it. My instructor moved away a few years ago and it became difficult to practice consistantly. Myself and a couple of the other senior students are working out again. I just hope we can keep it going.

Hi Dennis,

Welcome from Nashville, Tn.

Harmony does not mean that there are no conflicts,
for the dynamic spiral of existence embraces both extremes.

Re: Long time listener, First time caller.

Glad you came back

Have you tried other dojo in the area? I know that switching from what you've already learned can be difficult but the AikiWeb Dojo Search shows 11 aikido dojo within 25 miles of Baltimore, perhaps one of them offers something you'd like.

Anyway, keep it up.
