Re: Yoshinkan in or near Boston?
Both New England Aikikai and Shobu are excellent schools, but not Yoshinkan. NEAikikai is USAF and Shobu is ASU, both of which are under the Aikikai umbrella if I understand correctly. I've trained at both, and they each have different strengths which are worth checking out. I never heard of any Yoshinkan schools in the area, although I think there are quite a few schools of different styles if you extend your search farther out into the suburbs.
