Re: new guy

G'day Derek.

Great to hear you had such an awesome time. I understand what it is like to have a long break from training and then come back. I have been away from Aikido for 9 years due to family commitments!!! Arrgggh... way to long. Just started back a week or so ago. It's unbelievable fun. It is weird in some ways tho.. memories of techniques are very strong in the brain, but my body has somehow not kept up! Still, i figure if it is still lurking round the depths of my mind then it is just a question of time before the body gets back into the swing of it.. heheh.. i hope

So, cheers and hello back at ya,
