Smile Bow, and Enter. An introduction.

Greetings to all Aikidoka,
and casual visitors to the site.

While new to the website, I'm not that new to aikido. Have been studying the art for about thre and 3/4 years now. And just when I think I start to work it out, I find out there is a bit more further on.

Without a doubt, Aikido I find to be an effective martial art. I had all doubts removed when I broke a collar bone in two places.

But due to years of face plants and Ikkyos, nikkyos, and so on, I regained full mobility very quickly.

And I'm still good freinds with the fellow who threw me that move.

Interesting was the discussion about is Aikido "size-ist". Being 6ft3, and training shihonage against a 5ft0 partner, you rapidly learn that this is a three dimensional art. (four really: Timing as well.)

Anyhow, it's nice to have a site where you can chat with like minded individuals, understand the jargon, and if need be, you can throw a question on the forum floor, and everyone can have their say. Or not.

Say kudos to the webmaster, for a freindly website.
