View Full Version : Aikido in Canada

I am moving to British Columbia sometime soon, but I do not want to give up my Aikido. Does anyone know of any dojos in British Columbia or anywhere remotely nearby? I looked on Yahoo! and it seemed that there weren't any. :(
Thanx for reading!
Try using the AikiWeb Dojo Search Engine (http://www.aikiweb.com/search/) on this very site to look for dojo in British Columbia. Just select "Canada: British Columbia" in the "State" field and you should find 13 dojo up there. Hopefully, one of them will be near you.
You train at North Bay Aikido (http://www.northbayaikido.org)? That's a great dojo. I always enjoyed training there with Linda sensei and Glen sensei.

Wow, I am such a putz! Thank you so much for showing me that!
Yes, I am training now at the North Bay Aikido dojo. Such a large dojo, and there are so many wonderful teachers. It's a great place.
Rest assured aikido is alive and well in BC. There are many clubs in Vancouver including mine - Pacific Aikido Kensankai at Trout Lake. I also know of clubs in Victoria, Nelson, Kelowna and I am sure there are others. Mind you, BC is a big place so it depends whereabouts you are headed...
Hope to see you at PAK
Here's a link to the Canadian Aikido Federation dojo listing:
