I met a young man in Shanghai that was interested in training in Aikido. Told him to e-mail me when he got back and I would help him find a place. And so he did.

Does anyone of recommendations for dojo in Gainesville, Florida.

The club used to be free - or VERY reasonably priced.

The Dojo finder turns up several dojos with relatively high ranked instructors, especially for a college town.

Hi Peter,

There's a Jiyushinkai dojo in Gainesville. Ken Nin Dojo.
Contact Steve Bonett at stevenbonett@bellsouth.net

Definitely good folks to train with.

Great information. My dad lives relatively near (no pun intended, ouch.). I love hidden treasures; sounds like a gem.

I, too, have heard good things about the UF Aikido Club. And definitely check out the Jiyushinkai school as well. Clark Sensei's recommendation would be good enough for me. I believe there is also a school teaching Nishio and Iwama styles located near the campus. They would also be worth a look, methinks.
