Why dont we have aikido college courses over here? Would be a lot more fun than the crap I have to study Be an uchi deshi for three years and get a degree at the end, Id be up for that.
Lol, what a good idea. If I had my way: I'd be offering a whole curriculum in Aikido: "Aikido and Asian Philosophy (co-taught);" "Advanced Aikido (weapons-practice);" "The Life of Morihei Ueshiba," etc.

Unfortunately, CA-funding for education is being cut to the bone, and I am fortunate to even have a job there, at this time. My class is set to run in the Fall, but after that my chances of teaching Aikido there become very slim. Many other activities classes were cut.
