just thought i'd introduce myself - i'm Liane.
i've been studying Kung Fu and Tai Chi for almost five years, and i just took up Aikido a year and a half ago. i've had a bit of a battle going on between my chinese styles and my Aikido, but that pretty much ended at training on Friday
i'm now happy to report that i'm an aikido convert
also i'm writing an essay on 'healthy competition' in martial arts, so if anyone has any opinions it would be great to hear them
