djm: There are several good people in Miami:

Pablo Vasquez, a Chiba 6 Dan is at:

Aikido Institute of Miami

2811 Coral Way

Miami, FL 33145


WeeWow Dumlao, a USAF 3 Dan, formerly of Miami Aikikai, is at:

Festival Plaza,

above the Blue Banquet Hall

8532 SW 8th Street, Suite 282

Miami, Florida 33144

305-264-1773 phone

305-306-3348 pager

Elliot Rifkin and Gustavo Ramos, who with WeeWow were students of (Yamada student) Nelson Andujar, are at:

Miami Aikikai

251 B SW 22nd Avenue

Miami, FL 33135

305-541-0150, 305-670-2311 (fax)

I've trained at least once with all these folks and have no hesitation in recommending them to you. There are others in Miami, but I have no personal experience with them.


One I am considering is:


djm: That's up the road a bit from you in Miami, but Stephanie is also a strong player with a strong emphasis on basics (Iwama style).
