Hi Mark
This is a dojo I'm hoping to be visiting this year.
http://www.aikidowestflorida.com/aikido.htm
It's Erick Meades home dojo in Western Florida. If you can find the time it would interesting to see / compare your own current understanding of aiki in aikido with he and his teacher who supposedly do the same things. His teacher is the guy on the right on the front page. You also might want to hook up with Howard Popkin's group down there.
Have fun, bud
They're way up in Pensacola in the panhandle about 30 minutes from Mobile, Alabama. Almost Alabama, if it were. (I can say that, 'cause that's where my family's roots are.)

Any how, a few of our guys in the dojo join in the Howard Popkin training group. I could introduce you to those guys and I'm certain if there's a training group that weekend they'd might invite you to join them.

P.S. We're a Hurricane MAGNET.
