Re: Which Aikido school in or near Berkeley?
Kayla Sensei is awesome, I just trained with her on the weekend here in Germany, and visited her dojo before. She'd be a reason to move to Berkeley....
After your initial post, I am not entirely sure aikido offers what you are looking for, but if it does, I'd say you will hardly find a better place anywhere.
She will be in Europe for a little more time though.
And its not really in Richmond, almost Berkeley....
