Having taught at the YMCA in Austin TX previously, I always found them to be supportive of aikido and martial arts.
I'm glad to hear that. I would think that should be the case. This is a brand new YMCA so they have state of the art equipment including a whirlpool and sauna that many an aikidoist has longed for after a hard practice. I think for me, the hardest thing will be to get used to practicing in air conditioning. At my old dojo, we trained with the weather and in the summer, it was often over 100 degrees for months at a time.
