I started practicing Aikido at Vermont Aikido in the Fall of 1992. After a couple years, I took a long break, then started again at another dojo, Aikido of Champlain Valley. I studied there for a number of years, and then fell off the wagon again.
Yesterday, DW attended her first Aikido class at Vermont Aikido. She likes the dojo, the instructors and the other Aikidoka, and is planning to join and keep training. I will be joining and practicing, again, too.
I’m so excited; she was talking about getting some kind of mats so we can practice at home. This is so much better than the square dancing and tennis lessons that had been mentioned previously. (pheww!)
