I have been taking Aikido for just over seven months now. It is a mental and physical challenge that I love, and after each class I feel I have achieved something, which is a great way for me to end my day. After having two children I didn’t expect to get as fit again as I am now and this surprise has made me very happy. This together with the nature of what we learn in Aikido has made me feel stronger and more resilient than before. The atmosphere in the dojo is also great. The instructors are very good and there is a lot of camaraderie and dedication among students and instructors alike.
