Aikido in Tucson?

My mom and her boyfriend, who are wintering in Tucson (they've retired to the proverbial RV), want me to visit them there, sometime around the holidays. Luckily, I've just started a martial art that's known for letting out-of-towners train, and my own school recently hosted a visitor to prove it!

My research has only turned up a couple of aikido schools, so I'm quite open to suggestions: where's a great place to pay the "mat fee" in Tucson?

Re: Aikido in Tucson?

Aikido of Tucson is a welcoming friendly dojo not far from the university. Affiliated with Aikido Schools of Ueshiba. Mike Hazard is the teacher. I recommend it and I don't know for sure but there may not be a mat fee. Have fun.

Re: Aikido in Tucson?

The dojo search engine (left hand side of the home page) shows 8 dojos in Tucson - there may even be one in your style....

Re: Aikido in Tucson?

Hmmm... I hadn't even bothered to sue that function, having assumed (wrongly, it's now clear) that Google Search would be enough! Thanks, although recommendations are still welcome.

I'm a Hombu/aikikai student, which seems to leave me with at least half the schools there as options....

Re: Aikido in Tucson?

It is a useful tool (thanks Jun!!!), and provides a very good starting point.

I have had AikiWeb users provide additional information that is not in the directory.

There is this school: http://www.shoubudojo.com/

The Sensei there is Cody Lewallen. He trained in Osaka, Japan under Miyako Fujitani. See if you can observe a class.
