Re: No Aikido dojo - what now?? :(
I agree with Ricky. Five years is a long time to study an art that you don't enjoy. Besides, if you do take up aikido after five years of "preparing" for it, you may discover that you don't enjoy aikido. So pick an art and a school that you'll enjoy now. Besides, all of the arts that you mention include elements that would apply to aikido.
