Hello everyone. I'm Kevin Lasley and I'm still pretty new to Aikido. Every time I go though, I don't want to leave. I live in Northwest Indiana and work in Chicago at a Federal Prison. I've been a Correctional Officer for 7 years. I originally started Aikido for better and awareness and I was getting a little fat not doing much with my free time. I passed my first Kyu test last week and I can see the long road ahead of me and I look forward to every step. I know the road will never end because there always something new and different to experience and just makes it even more appealing.
