To our friends in Houston,
As you may know, Yoshinkan Aikido's highest ranking instructor in the US lives in Houston, however does not have a dojo of his own. Parker Sensei spends a lot of time traveling around N.A. visiting and training at several schools.
We would like to bring all his students/instructors together under one roof and would like to come to Houston to do so. My inquery is whether any of the schools in and/or around the Houston area would be willing, in the spirit of Aiki, to allow us to use/borrow/rent/beg to use your dojo for a weekend.
This of course is a feeler to see if this would be a possible alternative to renting a hall and such. If anyone thinks they could accommodate this, please drop me a private note at email@example.com.
Thanking you in advance for your consideration.
