Re: No Aikido dojo - what now?? :(

Aikido, the good unique part of it anyways, is more a state of mind, and kind of training then a collection of techniques.

If your heart is set on learning Japanese style techniques, go to the Judo/Jujutsu school. If you're all about the Aikido connection type thing you read about in all the fancy Aikido books, just start training; in anything.

You can train any kind of thing, even non-martial things, and learn Aiki. You just have to open your eyes, question what you see, and be willing to let go of your preconceived notions.
