Smile Still Training After All These Years

Hi - My name is Chris and I'm an Aikiholic! I lived for many years in California, where I started training in 1976. Over the years I've had a few years out to recuperate from injuries, and for attitudinal improvement. I moved to Switzerland last summer, and resumed training last Febuary. I moved to the Alps to climb, and got a new Dojo as a bonus. Chris

Re: Still Training After All These Years

Congratulations on a new dojo!

I started aikido in 1987 and now feel quite a weight of responsibility because I worry that so much knowledge and experience dies every time a senior instructor dies. Unfortunately students who have had direct experience with Ueshiba seem to be less and less.

Don't like th sound of the attitudinal improvement! Did that include electrotherapy?

---understanding aikido is understanding the training method---

I understand that yodeling is good for Ki development.
