I started my studies about 4 months ago at my local YMCA. It is actually a "satellite" class of Aikido Kokikai of Southern New Jersey, Cherry Hill, NJ. After the first rotation (8 weeks) the Y officials said there was not enough students enrolled for them to continue use of the space...so now I am at another satelite school at Newtown Athletic Club, Newtown, PA. I think I have settled in quite nicely and now have the opportunity of going twice a week vs the once a week the Y offered.
I have no MA background but have enrolled my 5 yr old daughter in the Y Karate class. Would rather she be in Aikido, but for that I would have to take her to Cherry Hill, which is about 45 minutes away.
Thank you for your introduction and welcome to the AikiWeb Forums!
