I ever been to two different dojos in Manila. One(Heart Center Aikido) is in Quezon and the other one(Makati Aikido Club) is in Makati. Instructors of the dojos are well known to aikido people in the philippines and very much credible afaik. Rey from Kiryukan was also very good. He was young and very tough.

By the way, IMHO, avoid dojos where teachers are wearing colored uniforms. Top should be white and pants(Hakama) should be navy blue or black. And the less and the smaller patches on top, the better.

Welcome to Aikiweb! We have a number of pinoy members here that could suggest different dojos in Manila/Quezon City area. One thing you need to ask yourself is what do intend to get out of your aikido training. If you can, try out different dojos with your daughter before you decide which one fits both your needs. Good luck.

Thanks Romuel for responding to my query. My daughter is a student of LaSalle, Taft. She has classes from morning till early afternoon (until 3 p.m. Mondays till Fridays) while during Sat., she has classes until 12 noon. Her free time is late afternoon. Hope there is a good aikido class that can fit her sched. While me, my office is in Manila and I am a lawyer by the way, my free time is Saturday, afternoon
