Hi

I will be going to Okinawa to the Okinawa National College of Technology from Oct to Dec for a student internship program. I am interested in looking for a dojo nearby to continue my training. Are there any recommendations nearby?

The closest one to that location (Henoko District in Nago City) is at Meio University (Biimata, Nago City).

Obviously it is an aikikai dojo, but I have no idea what lineage the sensei is. His name is Iwao Yamaguchi, and there is a previous thread asking about his lineage here: http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5262

He trained at Aikikai Hombu, and was a 7th Dan last time that I looked. I always seem to miss him when I'm in Okinawa, but a couple of my guys have trained with him and recommend him highly.

Best,

Chris

You can contact them through http://jibadojo.tumblr.com/hajime, I beleive. Last time I contacted them in Japanese they were very helpful, but I don't know how their English is. Alternatively, I'd recommend contacting Michael Veltri (http://www.dcaikido.com/), he can put you in touch with them.

Best,

Chris
