I've been doing Aikido for about a year-and-a-half now and am just loving it. While I used to fence for many years, I've always wanted to do a martial art. Being Asian-looking was enough to get me out of fights when I was in school but I figured it would be nice to have something to back it up with should the need ever arise
Anyway, this weekend I was away at a two day training camp and am feeling it now (despite a lengthy soak in the spa when I got home) It was a pretty full-on two days but I got a lot out of it and it was good for the soul to get offline for a bit as well
More on all of this next week...
