Cool Hello everyone

Hi everyone!
Just wanted to introduce myself. This forum is without a doubt the best I have seen for any martial arts forum and I think that it is great to have the opportunity to share messages on the one thing that I love so much...Aikido.
I am 43 and just started Aikido after several years of thinking about it. After only 5 months, I am finding Aikido to be addicting. Everybody in my dojo has been great with me; one thing that I find very different to other MAs (I'm also a black belt kenpo karate practitioner), is the sense of humbleness and comradeship that is widespread in my dojo. I hope that my body (I know my mind and spirit will) will continue to allow me practicing Aikido for many years to come.
