Thanks for 5 years of a great website. I have been coming here pretty much since the beginning. I use the the Dojo Search and the Seminar pages frequently. I recommend this site frequently to friends and people that are interested in Aikido. Having a t-shirt with your site address would help!

Thanks again Jun,

here are the reasons I like Aikiweb:

- Dojo search: very useful tool. I look for dojos near the places I travel. I've found on aikiweb and visited dojos in Amsterdam, Riga(Latvia), Ithaca(NY, USA)

- Good design. Easy to use, intuitive.

- Website is alive: updated often, many new posts in forums and even a t-shirt giveaway;o)

suggestion - add e-mail notifications to user profile

notify when:

a) new article posted (to any section or to a specific section)

b) new book review added

c) new link added

d) new post added to selected thread and/or by specific user

e) new dojo added to the search in a specific country/region

f) new member registered in a specific country/region

g) new poll

h) send Doka of the Day via e-mail

etc ...

Hmmm, where to start? First of all, congratulations AikiWeb and all my thanks to Jun for the incredible work! Why I like it here? Apart from all the information, I like the forum (although I don't have the time to hangout as often as before! I made really good friends here, learned a lot of things and laughed a lot.

Thanks again!

Site usage

I use this site when considering job offers. No Aikido dojo, no acceptance ;-) I just accepted a position in Japan for 3 years, so I'll just be reading the articles for a while. ;-)

I found my first dojo on the then brand new Aikiweb. I have been practicing regularly since then, and should probably put on a clean shirt.


Thank you for all of your hard work.

I like Aikiweb because there is little or no

foul language, nudity or violence. XL will do nicely. Domo.

the obvious answer to 'why do you like aikiweb?' is 'because it's hosting a T-shirt giveaway'

Moreover, though , it's a fun place to be hanging around. Lotsa fascinating discussions , certainly. And the dojo search thingie is invaluable.

Most of all, a source of inspiration.

I like Aikiweb because I can spend hours reading the threads during work while everybody thinks I'm working real hard...
It's my getaway,
my sanctuary,
my relaxation spot.

So Thanx, Jun, for being there for us - the addicted.

Re: AikiWeb T-shirt Giveaway!

I like Aikiweb cause it's a good place for people to discuss and know themselves.

Italy is not very big but the number little aikido association, and, narrow mindness and little common background of people makes me wish we had something like aikiweb in Italy too. (I've been thinking about it for a while...)

Anyway "L" would be fine ;-)

I dont need to be bribed with the prospect of a free T-shirt to say that Aikiweb is magnificent.

I think of Aikiweb as my online dojo. Still trying to figure out how to online clean the mats.

Still, I do agree with Chuck on the fact that it is actually us that should be buying Jun a T-shirt (WHAT, only one, he deserves a whole bunch of them )

If my name is drawn from the contest, I want Jun to have the T-shirt, for he deserves it!!
