Hello

Hi - it's great to be part of AikiWeb. I'm Judy Ringer, an aikidoist in Portsmouth, NH, where I have my own school - Portsmouth Aikido - with about 30 members. We just celebrated our eleventh anniversary in May. Our primary teaching influence was Mitsunari Kanai Sensei, who died in 2004. We are still closely associated with his school, New England Aikikai in Cambridge, MA.

My interests and work lie in translating the aikido metaphor to off-the-mat settings - workplace, education, and life situations - and I enjoy the learning that comes from doing this kind of work. I also love to read, swim, and talk long walks.

AikiWeb was kind enough to post my new book, "Unlikely Teachers: Finding the Hidden Gifts in Daily Conflict" (Thank you, Jun) in its "off the mat" category.

I look forward to becoming more involved in the AikiWeb community, and I hope you will visit our dojo if you are ever in the Portsmouth area. Good ki!

Judy

Re: Hello

Glad to have you here Judy! The aikiweb is a true labyrinth. Also, congratulations on your dojo's 11th anniversary, the first 10 years are the hardest.

Welcome to aikiweb Judy, I too am interested in using aikido a metaphor for off the mat setting. It is a fantastic martial art and so much more.

regards

Mark
