Glad to be here!

Hello everyone. I've been lurking on these forums for a little while now, and I can tell that you folks are a great bunch of people that I can learn a lot from. I've never trained in Aikido, but I hope to start some time in the near future. I've been reading up on Aikido for about a couple months now and it is very appealing to me.

I am looking forward to many good discussions!

Hi James welcome to the boards. If you let us know where you're at somebody here may be able to suggest a good dojo.

Re: Glad to be here!

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I live close to Columbus, Ohio. I've looked into some dojos around here already. Although I have yet to visit one, many of the people I have spoken with over the phone were very friendly and seemed to really enjoy what they do.
The reason I'm not training now is financial. However, I recently got a new job that pays better than my last, so perhaps I'll be able to get into a dojo some time soon. But it will probably still take a bit of time.
