"I have been practising aikido for almost 5 years now and I can feel at ease when I say it's one of those hobbies that you can only love more the more you do it. I've found that it's been the perfect stress reliever and no matter what's been troubling me a session of aikido always makes me feel better both mentally and physically. Never in my life have I encountered such a friendly atmosphere and as cliché as it sounds, everyone who joins becomes a part of the aikido family. "
( Mary Pantiru)
