Aikido's beginning

Updated: Apr 29, 2023

Stepping on the mat

Nerves racking, heart racing

Excitement and uncertainty blend

As a new journey starts to take shape

Sensei smiling, sempais bowing

Deep breaths, ready to begin

From the basics, I start to learn

Moving in harmony, falling with grace

Aikido is more than martial arts

It's a way of life, a way of being

Teaching me to befriend my emotions

Emphasizing the power of connections

Grateful for this chance to learn

Aikido will stay with me forever

A journey that's just beginning

And a path that's always worth pursuing

So join me, take that step on the mat,

Where nerves and excitement mix and match,

A new beginning, a new chapter unfolding,

Aikido awaits, and it will be worth holding.

poet: Natalia, shodan at Kihon Aikido
