Mark G. on board as a new member.
My experience is in boxing, kick boxing, fukemjuboka and isshinryu. I'm looking to make a 180 and get involved in aikido. I would prefer a "hard" style. Looking for a school in the Reading/Allentown PA area. I have done a lot of research, however there is nothing better than word-of-mouth referrals. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

This place might be a little too far but...
Mike Hutchinson is a great guy and knows his stuff.
Welcome to AikiWeb.
Here are two articles which may help you in searching for a dojo for yourself:
"Selecting a Dojo" (http://www.aikiweb.com/training/akiy7.html) - my "boilerplate" response when asked for dojo recommendations. "Evaluating a Dojo" (http://www.aikiweb.com/training/witt1.html) by Bill Witt sensei - Some tips for evaluating a dojo for newcomers.
Hope that helps,
