Mike Hanrahan, Katoomba

I have been practicing Aikido for nearly 2 years now and enjoy it immensely. It appealed to me in the beginning as a way of learning a non- aggressive martial art but has developed into much more than that. A t the age of 60 when I started it was somewhat difficult to get my stubborn body and brain parts to cooperate. However over time and with perseverance the body has become increasingly more flexible. At Shin Sen Dojo there are many advanced practitioners who help and teach under the guidance of the Sensei and I feel that I am beginning to scratch the surface while having a great deal of fun.
