Re: Newbie With Question

Definitely take the time at least to watch Aikido School of Central Ohio. No knock intended on the other schools because I have not visited them but I lucked into Sensei Gary when visiting in-laws years ago and now I encourage my wife to visit her mom. The weapons work is stellar, the open hand inspired, the dojo beautiful and the atmosphere respectful but not stiff. Any dojo that can make a man want to visit his mother in law must be very good. Also, they just graduated the largest class of Yudansha in their dojo's history so there is a large competent group of Sempai teaching as well. Enjoy.

PS: It's also reasonably priced.
