“Joining the Victoria Aikido Centre was one of the best things I have done in my life. The movements and exercises we do have allowed me to continue working in a very physical job without the usual injuries that plague nurses. I am now 61, I still work full-time as a critical care nurse and practice 3 to 4 times a week. I truly believe I would be looking to retire as so many of my cohorts have, if it were not for my time at the dojo”
