Hi i'm Richard
A 30 year old dutch guy. I started aikido january 2013. Passed my 6th kyu exam last december. So i think it is safe to say that i am really trying to learn aikido. Have searched the MA world a little bit. Had some time in Penjak Silat (Pukulan Betawi) and in Krav Maga. But they are all about taking an opponent out. Imho the best way to earn some jail time. And it did harden my personality too, wich at that moment sounded as a good thing. But with a nice marriage and 2 little daughters my 'bad ass' time is over and time to become that loving family man. That's where aikido kicks in great. Still able to be participating an MA and learning to relax and go with the flow.
So to keep things short. I'm hooked and therefore i shall bore you with posts and comments
