I went on Saturday and Sunday to study at the Institute of Zen Studies (izs.org). They have Aikido on Saturday morning, and Iaido on Sunday morning. The Aikido looks Ki Society-ish but with a bit more in the way of application. The Iaido students looked very serious and impressive.
I'm really excited about this place because the instruction is solid, and because they are interested in sitting zazen, as well as tying Aikido and hara development to your state of mind in your daily life. Unfortunately, class is way early in the morning, and I would need to buy an iaito.
