Thanks everybody for the help.
Now that I have all this information, I can plan visits to Aikido of Tamalpais (about 2 hour drive for me), or perhaps visit the Seattle area for a special event, like George S. Ledyard suggested.
I believe Aikido of Fremont is also ASU and presumably they would have some grasp of the ASU weapon system. I've come to value a shorter drive for my Aikido and from experience in watching the traffic in Marin, 2 hours might be conservative for you.
