Hello All,

I just wanted to stop in and say hi, this is a very nice community. Been lurking here awhile just checking out stuff on and off, and getting to know aikido. Actually, I've been interested in aikido since about 5 years ago but at that time I was having issues with my parents not trusting that the location of the dojo is safe enough for a teenager, especially if I have to walk alone at night to go to the dojo.

Now that I'm a bit older and have car (yay!) I can go and be an aikidoka! yay! I think I'm fortunate enough that the dojo where I'm getting instruction is where the late Sensei George Simcox was the Chief Instructor before his death. Now if I just joined a few years earlier, maybe I would have the privelage to have a class with him

Anyway, I definitely know that Aikido is for me (maybe additional MA, later on), to learn and pass on it's true meaning on is one of my purpose to be alive.

Hi Aldrich,

Welcome to AikiWeb and thank you for your introduction. Simcox sensei was a great man and a wonderful teacher; I miss him.
