At 41, I'm beginning my aikido training this month. I imagine I'll be much more limber and agile at 60 than I am at 41! I knew little about martial arts until this month when I found out about their big differences. I selected aikido because it offered exactly what I was looking for: agility and self-defense.
I'm in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA. I'm a computer programmer now. I used to be a professor of Chinese philosophy.
It's nice to be here on AikiWeb. Cheers!
