You might want to check out the Arizona Ki Society 7845 E. Evans in Scottsdale, AZ 85260. According to Yahoo! maps they're 34 minutes away from the dojo you mentioned. Fowler Sensei is a 7th Dan and they've been established for a long time. (480) 991-6467

The website you have is Arizona Aikido, which my dojo in Flagstaff is affiliated with. They are a great bunch of guys, Sakakibara sensei is a 6th dan in aikido and also a 5th dan in judo. I highly recommend them especially if its the closest, just a great bunch of guys and good community. If you know anything about aikido organizations in the US they are affiliated with Aikido Schools or Ueshiba headed by Saotome sensei who was a direct student of Ueshiba O'sensei. If you have any other questions post again on this forum and I'll try to help. And if you do start training I may see you as I will be probably be coming to Phoenix in July to help uke for the shodan exams. Let me know if I can help further, there site should be pretty much the most important stuff, and I'm sure if you go and visit someone will help you, talk to Wayne or Tom.
