New Student Introduction: juliette

Hello everyone,

I am a new student of Aikido yet before I began my training I read tons of posts here on AikiWeb. Now that I am 2 months into regular practice I have decided to officially sign up on here so I can start asking my questions!

Anyways, hello to all and a bit about me:

My interest in Aikido began a few years ago when I was looking for a way to overcome some trauma through strengthening my body and inner self. I read a little on different martial arts and realized that the philosophies behind Aikido really meshed with what I already felt about energy movement and the power of spherical motions. For some reason it took me about 3 years to finally commit to something as intimidating as joining a dojo full of big, serious men. However now that I have (and my husband began training also) I love it! I'm by no means good and I'm sure I don't actually "get it" but I am really enjoying overcoming my initial apprehensions and training with some very patient people at the Aikido of Northern Virginia dojo.

I look forward to learning a lot from everyone here.

Juliette

Good to hear from you, Juliette. It took me a while to get started, too. It's good to hear that you can train with your husband. My wife would be training with me, but she's working on getting her masters degree, and our little Hannah just turned nine months old.

Life happens.

Welcome aboard.
