Good afternoon to everyone. I little about me ... First of all, my name is Chantal and I joined Aikido about 5 months ago upon the suggestion of a friend. I had been looking to join a martial art for quite some time but nothing seemed suited to me. When I was told about aikido and some of the history, teachings, and spirituality behind it, I was very intrigued. After 5 months I can proudly say that this is where I belong. The dojo is like a small family to me and it is a place where I feel completely myself. I look forward to chatting with likeminded individuals here.
