Greetings from Scotland!
Just thought I'd introduce myself here. I'm a hapless 6th Kyu from a small town you've never heard of in Scotland. Though I've only been doing (or rather, been trying to do) Aikido for a few months, I'm thoroughly enjoying it - Much different from other martial arts I've tried; Kickboxing and Kendo.
Anyhoo, glad to find such a diverse Aikido community!
