Re: Can anyone suggest a dojo in Maryland
Shouldn't be hard to find a quality dojo in the area. Baltimore Aikido has a good reputation, though I've never trained there myself.
I can only personally recommend Capital Aikikai in Silver Springs. The dojo has a long history of quality aikido and great atmosphere. Takeguchi Shihan is def one of the best around. As far a spirituality, I think that is a unique journey that each of us has to discover on our own. 'Spiritual training' is not overtly taught at Capital...but training there has without a doubt been a spiritual endeavor for me.
