Hello Fellow Aikidoka

Hello Fellow Aikidoka,

I'm a writer who supports himself by playing classical guitar. Or is it the other way around? If ever I feel conflicted about this apparent dichotomy in my life, I head to the dojo, or walk by the river and look for abandoned tree forts where I can sit and contemplate the overwhelming diversity of human endeavour.

As a musician, I play and teach classical guitar, and compose and arrange music for said instrument (www.Music4ClassicalGuitar.com).

As a writer, I pen short stories, observational pieces that seek to inspire people to re-discover connections with people and the world around them, and humorous and reflective pieces about aikido.

To explore more fully the latter stream, I have teamed up with a cartoonist (Jon Oaker) and we have published our first book -

"Aiki-Doh!-ka: An Aikido Lexicon".

As you might suspect, it exposes the lighter side of aikido.

We have created a web site (www.WeLoveAikido.com) to give our book a home along with the other projects we are developing and a blog to express all that aikido is to us as life unfolds.

I hope you'll drop in for a few breakfalls and let us know what you think...

Back to aikido - I study Yoshinkan aikido, and have about six years on the mat. Currently, I'm preparing for my shodan test, set to occur in a couple of weeks. My home dojo is the Aiki Budo Centre in London, Ontario; Jaimie Sheppard is our head instructor.

See you on the blog-o-sphere!

Kevin Love
