Newbie here, hi all :)

Hey everybody,

I just registered to the boards, so an introduction is in order
Gotta say, I am SO NEW to Aikido, but I love it. I'm practicing at the Torrance Aikido Club with the SoCal Ki Society. So I've been practicing for a couple weeks now and I'm excited to do more...but I also hurt myself (shoulder separation ) so I gotta sit it out for a couple months What I get for trying too hard and not relaxing (I guess that's a lesson for me lol), but at least I can come observe until I'm feeling better.
I am glad to have found the Aikiweb site and community, very cool.

Ja ne,

Robin

Re: Newbie here, hi all :)

Nice to meet you Robin. Hang in there, and maybe get a good some reading on aikido to devour while you're healing,

mike.

and we're all newbies, or at least that's the goal,

Hi Robin. I too separated my shoulder when I first started. Didn't roll properly... I think I was off for about 3 weeks, then I didn't take any rolls for a while. Still working on my rolling though, I'm old so sometimes my shoulders don't feel the greatest...

Thanks for sharing your experence with me, hope you get back to 100% sometime soon

I'm glad to say that I am getting better bit by bit every day, though I still gotta take it easy (plus I'm gonna do my best to follow doctor's orders, want this to heal up properly ). But definitely won't be rolling for a while. Ah well, in the overall scheme of things, it isn't too long of a time, and like Mike said, I can always do some reading. Cool. Alright, later guys, take it easy.
Robin
