"I am now a little over a year into my Aikido life. I have found something that gives me a great work out, is constantly challenging me both mentally and physically. It is extremely relaxing but allows me to satisfy that inner primal rage that stress creates. All the things I was looking for in a workout. However that is not all I have gotten out of Aikido. I have found myself surrounded by the most eclectic group of people who are extremely fun, supportive and have in my mind become my second family. For the first time in years because of these people I am comfortable being myself." Belinda L.
"Its learning self defense while also promoting an inner calm while doing it. Its something you can relate to every day life =]" Kirsten W.
"Everyone needs to know how to fall. It is just one of those things that can kill you. Aikido will make sure you don't kill yourself when you fall off of your bike..... and you get to throw people to the ground; all while getting some exercise, how cool is that?" Larry B.
"I am no longer an angry person any more. Not because my teachers tell me to stop being angry, but somehow all those small things that used to upset me no longer seem to matter any more. Training in Aikido and having the chance to associate with the people in this organization is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. It has made me a better person." Ashley H.
