I recent read a flyer at my local Y center about an Aikido class, and was immediately interested in what Aikido is all about.
During the past two weeks I have scoured the Internet for information about the Aikido, and also finaly have a chance to visit a class tonight.
What intrigued me about Aikido is its non-violent approach to self-defense, and its spiritualitly.
What has me confused is who can I trust to be a good sensei? My head is swimming with what not to do, what kind of sensei and dojo to check out, am I too old (39) to start, etc, etc.
I am not in this to learn how to throw people or put on a show. I am looking for something that will help me discipline, self-worth and well being.
Thanks for your time.
