Just getting started

Hello all,

I just recently joined a dojo in Denver. I have found that Aikido is terribly addictive. I have been boring everyone I know with "Last night in class..." I found Aikiweb mere days ago, and I really enjoy all the different perspectives on Aikido. Stangley, I have noted that I can find two diametrically opposed posts on the same subject, and I agree with both. Ain't Aikido grand?

If ever there was a case for aikido burnout, you are it. My condolances if you are still doing aikido in four months. In gassho, tamonmark

You think? Nine-and-a-half months later, I'm still going with slightly more than moderate intensity. Still, there are times when I have to add willpower to my motivational checklist.

Re: Just getting started

Hey Chris! Don't know if I've had the chance to meet/train with you yet. I haven't been in a couple of weeks due to work demands. I usually attend the tue./thurs. 7:45 class. I hope to see you soon.

Re: Just getting started

I was wondering. I usually can't make the late class, but I am there for the first 2 classes most days. I imagine that we'll meet soon. Onegaishimasu!!
