Thanks for the reply.
I just found one thats actually pretty close.
Can you experienced folk tell me whether or not this is a legit dojo? I will be visiting it tomorrow, but if you guys right off the bat can tell it'd be a great warning!
If they are connected with Alan Drysdale as seems to be suggested by the pictures, then yes they (Juan Alberto et al.) are legitimate
Certainly looks ok to me.
Color belts don't mean a lot. Some legitimate organizations use them and some don't. AAA uses them for example. Sometimes they are used only for children's ranks.
If you interest is in learning Aikido, this would certainly be a better choice than the Atemi-Ryu place.
