Re: Touring America
If you happen to visit northeast Ohio, you are also welcome to train at either of my dojos--Three Streams Aikido in Twinsburg and Kent State University in Kent--both teach Steven Seagal Shihan's Tenshin methodology. In particular, our dojocho, Vladimir Soroka (godan), focuses on weapons training (swords, knives, chains, etc.) and randori techniques on Sunday mornings. I would also recommend that if you visit Ohio, you also train at the Cleveland Aikikai in Cleveland Heights or Oberlin College in Oberlin--the chief instructors, Jim Klar and Jeff Hadley, are simply superb.
