Aikido Because It Is Hard - By William Terrell

Posted 2010-03-05 19:43:46 by Jerry Akel
News URL: http://www.aikidocenterofjacksonvill...se-it-is-hard/

I have no romantic notions of what it means to be a warrior. I served in the United States Marine Corps and worked for ten years as a deputy sheriff. I have seen the dead and the dying, the deliberate and the accidental. I have seen people shot, cut, burned, beaten, strangled, crushed, even literally hammered to death. I understand how fast violence can erupt/interrupt into our everydayness and destroy our lives. My goal is simply that of any warrior/father/husband: to be prepared to protect and defend myself, my family, my community.
