Meet a Dojo Member: Nancy Mateski

Nancy Mateski

When and how did you start Aikido?:
I started Aikido in 1995. Someone who I admired very much suggested I try it. I said "OK", and jumped right in without really knowing anything about it.

What made you stay?:
I've stayed for many reasons. The main one is that I love the feeling of community I get from being in an Aikido dojo. You don't just come and go from practice like at a health club. Being in a dojo it is understood that you are expected to give some of your time and energy to help maintain the facilities. The members care about the dojo, and each other.

What do you like about Aikido?:
Besides the awesome excercise, I think my favorite thing about Aikido is that for one hour a day I get to set aside anything that might be troubling me and do nothing but focus on the present moment. I also like the challenge of constantly learning.
