And we are also in the Albuquerque Area. We are a small group - and a USA branch of the Ellis Schools of Traditional Aikido. I am also a maker of custom knives - and our company website is www.ds-tactical.org
, but I can also be found through my blog-site www.rog99.blogspot.com
or by reading the book I co-authored with my teachers, "Positive Aikido."
