Smile hello

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.

Take care,
Chantal

Re: hello

it is great you have been able to find a dojo that feels right for you.
I have been reluctant to have myself practice aikido yet as I was not able to find something similar.
All the dojo I have found were "big names" and a bit too impressive to me.

anyway, welcome.

Re: hello

I really have no choice in the dojo I choose. .. the next nearest one is about 120 km away (Ottawa or Kingston)... but I am lucky that this one feels "comfortable" ... no need to travel to train.
