Re: Can I get your thoughts on my Dojo/Sense


If you live in perkasie you are probably only 10 minutes or so from the dojo i train at. It is called Bucks County Aikido and the chief instructer there is George Lyons. Lyons Sensei was a direct student of T.K. Chiba who was uchi deshi of O-sensei. he is ranked 5th dan and is a registered shidoin with usaf western region under Chiba sensei. No sneaky extra ranks here, haha.

check it out at

It is a great place to train and there are other younger people there as well so if you are started with your child it would be good.

A friend of mine actually trained at Saboten ryu for a while and from what he said it sounded like the guy only really wanted money. Most of the other dojos in the area seem to have a complete opposite approach so i'm sure no matter where you end up it will feel a bit better.
