Comments welcome, and corrections appreciated. But this is intended mainly as a personal progress journal and class-notes repository. To save myself alot of typing: Link to Aikido article here.
Start date: December 30, 2005
Days practiced: ~40 (a retrospective and probably generous estimate)
Spent the first 5 or 6 weeks attending the Ukemi class, learning the basics of falling down without hurting yourself – mostly front rolls. “Come for the rolls, stay for the beer” should be their slogan, as multiple rounds of free beer courtesy of Sensei was the draw to get people to practice on a Friday night. Then on to regular classes.
Attended my first seminar yesterday.
