Blush! misunderstanding

~~Hi all!
I just made a statement on another thread that one thing I really liked about this website was that it seemed open to all martial artists, not just Aikidoka. Then I thought...Oooo, perhaps I've misunderstood. Are you all Aikidoka? I study Aikido right now but am a mixed-bag martial artist of many years. Anyone else? Egg on my face

I'm an Aikidoka, sort of...

I guess I consider myself more of an aspiring Aikidoka

FWIW, Aikido is my first martial art.

I'm only into Aikido now. I used to do Judo and Taekwon-do. I'm interested in all martial arts however.

Aikido primarily. MMA secondarily. Looking to find FMA someplace. Oh, and then kendo. And also....

(well, you can what all my money goes on ;-P

It use to be that I was totally polarized against some arts (judo etc). The more I trained, the more I got to like 'em all.

I've done bits n bobs but primarily aikidoka. Yep, I think we're mostly aikidoka (except for the ones that write and say they can kick our arses).

Done this and that (respectively karate and kendo) but primarily (exclusively actually) aikido ka now. I think a large percentage of the people on this forum have dabbled in other MA's but have a main focus upon Aikido - hence the name of the forum

I currently study Aikido (8 years), primarily FMA (Kali/Escrima for 16 years), been in martial arts stimce 17 (35 years).

I think some people come to Aikido directly and others of us have to evolve towards it.

IMHO, you will find mostly Aikidokas here by definition of the forum, but a lot of us have been around for a while.

Until again,
