Training again :)

Hello all,

Just a quick introduction. I'm Michael, or Mike, in Nashville, Tn and am returning to training in Aikido/martial arts after a 12-18 month layoff due to a crazy work schedule.

While in college, and then the military, I had the opportunity to train extensively in Tae Kwon Do, and for various lengths of time in other arts including Shotokan, Kenpo, Tang Soo Do, and a couple of styles of Kung Fu.

Since being in Nashville I got to train for about 9 months in Aikido and *LOVED* it and then work took me away from the dojo.

Now I have changed jobs and have returned to training once again (this is my 2nd week back in class).

I have learned a lot already from a couple of the forums while waiting for my profile to be approved and can't wait to learn more and contribute insight where I can.

Mike
