Greetings from California!
Hello everyone! I am newly registered on AikiWeb, but I have been practicing Aikido for a little over 4 years now. Since I have been enjoying reading the forums, I thought it was only fair to jump in. (Plus, I was just itching to put in my 2 cents on a couple of threads.)
I suppose I was inspired to register as I have been going through some life changes and have found much support in my local dojo. I have also found that it is lots of fun to visit other dojos when I travel (and when I can make the time!), and I have been pleasantly surprised at how warm and welcoming I have found others who practice our art.
So, thanks to you all for your interesting posts inspiring me to join, and I hope to have the opportunity to visit dojos in the future where I "know" someone from AikiWeb!
