Greetings, thanks and welcomes
Hello there, my name is John Hutton and I am an aikidoka of 6 years from the home counties of England. Since coming across this website far back in the mists of time (aged 12) I have found the articles to both illuminating and challenging on multiple levels, and I strongly maintain that it has been of great positive influence on my practice of aikido. As I have always engaged in an active pursuit of personal betterment in aikido, and now that I have reached an age at which I can write down my thoughts in a coherent and mature fashion, I feel that contributing to this website will be an ideal method of furthering this. I hope that any piece I write here from this point on will be as useful to your development in aikido as your writings have been to mine.
