View Full Version : Hello from Dublin!

Hi All,

Having practiced martial arts during my college years (Wado Ryu) and for a little while after (Kickboxing).. I became interested and consumed by playing football (soccer)... now later in life with a family and effectively retired from football, I have rediscovered my earlier passion for martial arts through my kids, by joined their club (Dublin Tomiki Aikido (http://www.tomikiaikido.ie)) a little less than four years ago. ... It's great to be back training again, and especially in an art that is mentally and physically challenging.... but more so, that I have the opportunity to share and enjoy a budo tradition with my two girls (9 and 12). We are now looking forward to the day their younger brother (3) takes to the mats.

Hello, vonryan. Welcome to E-Budo, and thank you for the bio. That's a great photo!
Re-discovering martial arts can be very rewarding, especially when your kids are now involved. We hope you enjoy the journey, and find these discussion forums helpful and engaging.
