I have wanted to do Aikido for a good three years but numerous things have stopped me. This time I have said that nothing will stop me and I shall be attending all the lessons (although saying this.. the lessons have been cancelled for three weeks since the Dojo is being renovated ).

I have been reading Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere and it has really helped me to understand the principles. I was always confused by the Japanese terminology but I think they are almost becoming second nature!

Re: Hello.

Welcome to AikiWeb James. Get on the mat as soon as you can so you can experience connection and flow. It is really quite an experience. Don't worry too much about the terminology, you will have plenty of opportunities to get them pounded in your brain
Relax and have fun.
