Re: Using Aikido During Sparring
Try the dojo before you decide. Try classes in all the ones you are willing to travel to. See how the students relate to each other, and how the instructor relates to the students.
Listen a lot, and then at some point be willing to just invest in one situation for a while. You'll learn things over time that may make you change your mind about when, where, under whom it is best to train. But the only way to learn those things...is to train somewhere, under someone.
It's kind of a fun process!
