I was super excited upon stumbling upon this community. ^^! People who know what I'm talking about and their only fondness of the martial arts/samurai aren't from too many video games, yaaay.
I've been practicing the art of Shindoryu Aikijutsu for about . . . wow, almost a year now, and will hopefully be testing for my green belt in the fall. I'm going into my junior year of High School in a small town smack in the middle of Illinois. Our dojo is frighteningly small (in size and members) and really doesn't have much significant about it. Though supposedly Shi'han Ron Ater was well known at some point in time. **shudders** Scary man. My Sensei is Dr. Frank Meyer . . . who's also the super intendent of the school district. The man of a million faces.
**waves it away** Well, not that anyone cares about the nitty gritty details.
But anywhooo . . . Yo!
