Ron Tisdale seems like a good person to train with, I think he is from Phili. He is at a place called Doshinkan dojo I believe

Hi Dennis! Welcome to the birthplace of America!

There are 3 ASU dojo in the area...but I'd love to see you stop by the Doshinkan...

http://aikidosuimei.com/Contact/tabid/107/Default.aspx for Aikido Suimei and Garret Fuller

http://www.aikidoeibukan.com/wst_page7.html for Dwayne Bolt.

And David Goldberg is here too...but I think that dojo just relocated...David was one of my first instructors in aikido. More in a minute. Ok, back now (stupid work :) )

http://aikidoseishinkan.org/ is Goldberg Sensei's site. Feel free to email me, and I'll send you my phone number...maybe we can get a beer or two if nothing else...or a cup of jo if you are a tetoteler...(did I spell that right?).

Oh, and personally, when I train downtown, I like to visit and train with Henry Smith Sensei at the Phila. Aikikai. Always a good time there.
