Aikido in Iwakuni
(This was asked a while back, but I'm checking to see if anyone has more recent information.)
I have a young Marine who's shipping out to the base at Iwakuni and he's wondering if anyone knows about Aikido classes in the area. He may not have a lot of time for travel to Hiroshima, so he's looking for something local.

According to the aikikai home page, there is "Yamaguchi Aikikai Iwakuni Bushinkai Dojo" in Iwakuni city. You can contact them at Not sure if it is close to the navy base or not.

Re: Aikido in Iwakuni
The school I've been to in Iwakuni may be the one robin referenced as it was an aikikai affiliate. It has been some years, but if I recall correctly if he heads west in the big intersection in front of the train station he'll pass a Nissan dealership on the right and then right before the intersection with Route 2 there is a couple of roads on the left and the school was on the second floor of a building down one of them. The building has a sign that says Aikido in kanji.

From the north gate by bike it is probably about a twenty minute ride. If he knows how long it takes to get to the train station it's only a few minutes from there.

Tell your friend to find someone who knows how to get to the "Chicken Shack". He'll love it.
