Although no longer practicising Aikido, as a young man I spent some time trying to learn this art, achieving limited success. Despite that, I still have a certain fondness for it. My primary teacher was Richard Ostrofsky in Ottawa. I spent a small amount of time in Victoria trying to reconnect with the art, but did notcontinue for long.
