Re: Poll: How did you find your first aikido dojo?
I took an introductory Aikido course at the college and was hooked instantly. I had tried Karate, Judo, and a few other martial arts before, but never really cared for any of them. For sure it had more to do with the instructor than the art itself. Before then I had never met a martial arts instructor I could even stand to be around. After that I've managed to find several Aikido instructors who have changed my life.
