After years of thinking, almost starting, pushing it off, rethinking, etc. I finally did start looking into martial arts again. I did couple of years Hapkido some 10sh years ago, but it wasn't an art for me. Too violent one might say.

So, friend of mine has been practising Aikido off and on for 18 years or so. So naturally I looked into it. And sure enough, it seemed to be the right choice. Knees and toes... they sure get abuse, but they'll learn to love it too given time and stretching.

It's been now couple of weeks, and I'm loving it more every time I go to the dojo. And as I'm a geek, been lurking here and in different websites for last month or two. Well, knowing myself, I'll be hanging around here quite a bit. So, just saying "hi"
