Greetings from Toronto, Canada
Hello fellow Aikidoka,
I studied for a brief time under Gaku Homa sensei in Denver (back when his dojo was on north Federal Blvd), and I also studied aikido for a short while in Tuscon, and Minneapolis, St. Paul. Unfortunately due to a neurological disorder my training in the dojo has not been constant. I'm starting to get better, and in the process of recovery. I'm doing a lot of cycling and taking a yoga class for physical therapy (even though my heart belongs to Aikido!). The short time I spent in the dojo has gone a long way in helping me off the mat dealing with my illness, and with interesting and colorful life experiences (opportunities to practice Aiki). I hope to be back to the dojo soon, maybe 6 months or so but harmonizing with life is more important than following a date.
I decided to find an Aikido forum when I joined the yoga class, as an of an eyes on the prize sort of thing.
