Re: Screaming white belt newbie

Anne Marie -- does "enjoy" cover that masochistic sense of pride one has when one feels the need to show off just how stiff and sore they are? I move like a ninety-year-old! My butt muscles HATE me!

Bronson -- thanks. It's good to have such a supporting community here online to listen to me gripe and moan. I'm sure my husband appreciates it too, since it means I'm not making him listen to all of it. And, PS, thanks again -- did you check out the Laurel Book? Physically all I really did was half the calligraphy, the gilding, and the bookbinding; outside of that, I organized all the artists, helped design and research, and laid out the structure. I'm unseemly proud of that thing.

Re: Screaming white belt newbie

Hi everyone I'm David I have been doing aikido for a couple of months and I'm starting to feel the benefits. Sensei says I am making good progress and that my posture is good.
I wanted to start aikido mainly as I had never done this form of martial art before and because I am interested in japanese culture.
I did Kendo for a couple of months beforehand I enjoyed it but I had to quit as it was a half an hour trek to get there 2 times a week and I couldnt always get the transport.
After Kendo I wanted to try something like karate but there were no karate clubs in my area so I made a good decision and started Aikido. As soon as I stepped in and felt the friendly atmosphere, I knew it was for me.
I know how you feel heather whenever we take seiza my legs are in pain and when I stand up i have to hobble around a bit to get the feeling back. Sensei says that I should take cod liver oil tablets (no thanks yuck!) Also theres a 25% chance that my foot will lock up and send me hopping around the mat cursing like a madman.

Re: Screaming white belt newbie

My left foot cramps up if I don't take Magnesium and warm up. Ask your doctor if any supplement would help.
