Awwos from Michigan based newbie

Hellos all. I've just started doing Aikido about a month ago, and so far enjoying it lots. I guess based on those RP threads in the humor section, I'd count as a baby elf. (ie, I'm doing the Aikikai flavor)

Let's see, what else... Nothing I can think of right now, so just... Hi!

Hi Josef,

Welcome to AikiWeb and Michigan Aikido There're a few of us Michiganians floating around here of various styles. If you ever plan on traveling around don't be shy about visiting us.

Re: Awwos from Michigan based newbie

Welcome Josef,

We are in the same dojo - I don't think I've met you yet. Will try to ferret you out in class sometime. Lots of nice folks out here on the web, and in the dojo. Have had the pleasure of meeting and practicing with Bronson twice now, so I know the MI group is a good one.

Look forward to meeting you soon.

Rachel

Neat. And So far I only go to the basics (and basics weapons) and mixed classes. (ie, mondays, tuesdays, and thursdays 6-7)

And looking forward to meeting you too.

Thanks.

As for travel, well already do a bit in the sense of I wanted one of the softer flavors, but nearer to where I live were, IIRC, Yoshinikan dojos and such. Net effect is to get to my dojo, I'm making a 75 mile round trip each time. (yeah, round trip, so not as bad as each way, but given gas prices, I imagine my travel costs may very well beat my dojo fees. *whimpers* )

Ah Josef, I have met you! You are the bloke who travels in from a distance. You've had my class once (I think I taught the first night you were there). Good to put a face with a name (takes me awhile).

See you on the mat. Enjoy AikiWeb - Jun has put together a great site!

Ohhh, so that's you. Okay. Actually, I think you've taught me at least twice.

And yes, sure seems neat. (Actually, though I just started posting, been looking at the site for a while, was one of the resources I used when researching Aikido to see if that's what I wanted and which flavor, etc etc etc)
