View Full Version : aikido in/near Traverse City Michigan?
06-26-2003, 12:36 AM
My web searches have proven mostly fruitless in trying to find aikido around Traverse City Michigan. The only hint I've found is mention of a yoshinkan class at the university. Unfortunately neither the instructor's name or contact info is given.
I head up that way a couple times a year to visit family and thought it might be cool to train while there (as the family is pretty boring).
If anybody knows of a class or instructor up that way could you please pass me their info?

Doing a Yellow Pages search has yielded this (http://www.yellowbook.com/?TypeID=1&StateID=26&City=traverse+city&SearchHierarchyID=12367&Category=martial+arts&HeadingID=40851&INTID=652578&ContentID=15&INTAdIDs=652578|652577|652579&OffSet=0&) and this (http://www.yellowbook.com/?TypeID=1&StateID=26&City=traverse+city&SearchHierarchyID=12367&Category=martial+arts&HeadingID=40851&INTID=652577&ContentID=15&INTAdIDs=652579|652577|652578&OffSet=1&) both of which leave me with a bad taste in my mouth :straightf There are others that aren't so bad but no aikido to be found :(

Ah Bronson, why not vacation in the Saline area instead and come and visit my dojo :-)

If you're doing a road trip why don't you swing by the Maple Street Y. ;)

I will....eventually ;) I'm up on the rotation for teaching Monday nights in July. That leaves me with one night a week without aikido and that's the night I take iaido :rolleyes: It looks like I won't get any free time until August. I definitely want to get together though. I recently received my shiny new Kingfisher bokken and want to put some dents in it...or try to anyway :D
