Old Girl

I started Aikido in 1985 and have been at the same dojo all that time, still hoping to get it right one day.

The thing I really like about Aikiweb is that other people out there have a sense of humour about training, and the things we put ourselves through, and Aikiweb gives us all a chance to share that humour, our feelings and our experiences.

regards
Janice

Re: Old Girl

Hi Janice. More humor is most welcome! I've only been at it since 1998, but I'm trying to get it right too. Welcome aboard.

Re: Old Girl

Some of the arguments are humorous too.

Re: Old Girl

Ah... a lurker tosses forever the cumbersome mantle of anonymity. Don't you feel like you're running naked through a spring meadow? Welcome to the "other side"! Glad we could bear witness to your coming out...

Re: Old Girl

I'm afraid I've been lurking for a long time - too shy to join in. Believe me, I'll be keeping my clothes on.
