New to Aikido,and even newer to aikidWeb

Hello all

I just wanted to take a minute to say hello.
My name is Shaun, and I have reently finished my second month of Aikido training. I know I've learned a bunch ...but I feel like I know less now than I did two months ago. I hope that is the norm.
Well have fun training, and thanks for all your conversation...it's nice to see such a large community, especailly when your the new guy.

Hey Shaun, Its normal to feel like that. Your gonna learn a hell of a lot more if you keep at it. But you'll always feel as if you dont really know much. Happy training!

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.

Going to train at a dojo is like visiting a friend for tea. You shouldn't bring your own tea. You should sample his instead. When you train in a new martial art, you have to "empty your cup at the door", and let Sensei fill it with knowledge you've never tasted before. Good luck in your future training!
