So much for that idea.

The aikido project is dead. It was, i thought, a good idea for the hour it lasted. At the moment it looks like i'm going to be taking something of a step backwards. My plan now is to try and find a way to get into the local aikikai classes and start training there. Yes, i'm going to be starting over at square one in a different organization but not getting to do aikido ever again seems to be the worse option. What's an ikkyu 2500 miles from his teacher really supposed to do?

Pat says i should find a couple of people that would like to learn aikido and practice with them, in a way teaching each other, but i just don't feel like i would do our style justice. There's a lot of rust and uncertainty on my part in that regard.

Aikido Project

Just a quick update. Here's the actual page for the project John and I are doing. It's nothing fancy and you are bound to be disapointed if you're looking for the reinvention of the wheel or extremely crisp technique. It's really just something john and i are doing to practice various parts of aikido. Hopefully we'll get better and get some great advice along the way.
