Introduction

Well I think I've lurked in the shadows long
Enough.
Hello all my name is Robert I've been a student of Aikido for hmmm it will be 8 yrs in October . I train at Aikido of Phoenix in Arizona , I'm still not very savy with the whole Chat room thing but I can't resist .

Let's see a little about myself i enjoy outdoor sports climbing,hiking and most of all training! I just recently tested for 2nd
Nikyu and I am still getting used to my Hakama
not really sure who's wearing who at this time
but I'm sure we will work it out

well that's all for now i have to go get my gunfighter clothes and hit the mat

happy training !

Robert,

Good to meet you. I was a student of Sosa Sensei.

In fact, one of my assistant instructors bought a white oak jo from your sensei.

All the best,

I'll be in Phoenix this coming August for a week or so. Is it really as unbearable as everyone says?

Hah! I was there for two years. In August I found that you cannot wash your windsheild - wet it and scrub it with the sponge side of the squeegee, and by the time you turn it around to the scraper side, the windshield is dry.

Lucky you.

Yikes. People asked why I moved from Seattle to Salt Lake - I moved to be in the cold.

I think I might melt in Phoenix
