Hey guy's I tried posting in my Hello thread But the last 3 times I have tried to post it did not replicate to the server. (or they were blocked?) I am going to go look at http://www.saltlakeaiki.org/ This friday if every thing works out. Does any one have any other recommendation ? From what I have found out it looks like it is a very respectable place.

Sweet! What are your impressions of aikido so far? Or anyones for that matter.

My impression of Aikido is that it is very difficult and nuanced. More so than the Karate and Pa Kua that I studied before it. It certainly isn't for everyone, but no art is.

That dojo is in North Ogden. That's about 45 minutes from the Salt Lake Valley, which is where I assume that the OP is at. Not very practical. There are many dojos in this valley, but you won't find most of them on the web.

*Edit: That's 45 minutes if you drive 20 mph over the speed limit as is customary in Utah.

Would you be kind enough to list those that aren't on the web please?

If I knew where they were, I would. I'm only aware of them because I heard my sensei mention that there are more than a dozen other dojos in this valley.

I visited Utah Aikikai (http://www.utahaiki.com/) for a couple days back in the winter. It's a very nice space and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

I maintain a directory of Aikido dojo in Utah. Currently there are 9 listings in Salt Lake City and several others throughout the state.

Utah Aikido Dojo Directory (http://www.aikido-utah.com/utah-aikido-dojo-directory.html)

BTW - if anybody knows of any other dojo that are not on the list, please contact me so I can include them. Thanks.
