Talking Ohayo from Abercynon, Wales

Hey, guys and girls. My name's Dan, and I'll be starting aikido on Monday night in Aberdare, at the Michael Sobell Sports Center (The Ynys). I went to check out the class last night, was my first time in an aikido class for 7 years, very scary. Who else goes there? How long you been going? Looking forward to meeting some new people through this :-)

Re: Ohayo from Abercynon, Wales

were you the guy talking to sensei? wearing a black top? I go to the ynys. Sensei Tennant is cool (as you may have guessed).

Though there are many paths
At the foot of the mountain
All those who reach the top
See the same moon.

Re: Ohayo from Abercynon, Wales

*Grins* Hey, David :-) Were you one of the pair closest to the door? As I said on MSN, was trying to figure out which one you were, lol. But yeah, I was the odd one out. Only one with long hair, only one with facial hair.... well, only one without a gi, lol.

Which reminds me, since you're here, Dave, where did you get your gi? I have no idea where to get one, my sensei in aikijutsu supplied mine :-$ Do you know of any cheap place? I looked on ebay but they're all 40 and 50 :-s.

What are the senseis names? I gotta fill it in on my profile lol.

Thanx for the welcome, guys :-) And ooh, welcomed by the Admin :-D So honoured am I, I just registered as a contributing member, hope it helps :-) It's so great to be a part of something with so many people.
