I am looking for a little bit of help here. I've got a friend in LA/Hollywood and I will be visiting her after Christmas til 9th of January.

I would like to introduce her to Aikido. She says she is not into martial arts because she does not like violence. However, I think that Aikido -especially the Aiki way of living- is *exactly* hers. Now, I would like to go with her to a nice dojo, maybe some small and cozy one :) , and have a beginners training together. If she likes it fine, if not ... fine as well.

Can anyone help me and recommend me a place?

Thanks and best regards,

when I lived in LA I went to a very very soft style Aikido Dojo called "ACE AIKIDO". just google it and it'll pop up. It's in Santa Monica I believe. It's the least martial aikido every, and the style is not for everyone, the people are great and you can just go sit in on a class, though i recommend you participate, as if you just watch it, you will probably be much more skeptical.

Thanks a lot! I am an Aikidoka and will attend the class for sure. I just have to persuade her as well :)
