Hello! I just started aikido in Commerce Texas this Saturday the 28th. I'm not to sure what type it is all the people called it "Combat Aikido" and the patches on the robes *i'm not to sure what the correct name is* says ARA Aikido...American Ryu and I don't remeber the last A...If any of ya'll know what it is I'd love to know! It bugs me having to wait till next class to ask lol. Anyways I'm glad to have found an active online community for my new endvor! I hope I can bring postive post to the message boards as often as a I can.
