Hi all, Hope this post finds you well!
A short introduction, my name is James, I used to practice Aikido but for the last 2 years I've been studying Yang Style Taijiquan.
I've always had an affinity for the Aikido world since you held my first steps into the martial arts world! Because of this, and because you all seemed like nice people while I was reading the messages I figured I'd sign up!
Well that was one reason, the other is that I like talking to other martial artists but find most of the Tai Chi world annoying. Unfortunatly most of what is taught as Tai Chi these days (esp, though no exclusivly, the Yang style) is garbadge! and so finding a forum with people who practice the 'real deal' is pretty hard going.
Anyway, like I said, more than the above reason I signed up because I like Aikido and have found most of it's students to be of high Moral caliber!
So, with great respect to you all and your art I say, Hi all, hows things?
p.s. Thanks to Akiyama-san for sorting out my account, all my fault I must say but still, thank you very much!
