Okinawa Dojo Near Okinawa National College of Technology

Hi

I will be going to Okinawa to the Okinawa National College of Technology from Oct to Dec for a student internship program. I am interested in looking for a dojo nearby to continue my training. Are there any recommendations nearby?

The closest one to that location (Henoko District in Nago City) is at Meio University (Biimata, Nago City).

Re: Okinawa Dojo Near Okinawa National College of Technology

Their website no longer works. I found this contact info on the aikikai website.

道場名 沖縄合気会名桜大学合気道部 先生の名前 山口巌
所在地 沖縄県名護市字為又1220-1
連絡先 098(857)1170
備考 名桜大学柔道場
月・木曜日19:00~21:00

Obviously it is an aikikai dojo, but I have no idea what lineage the sensei is. His name is Iwao Yamaguchi, and there is a previous thread asking about his lineage here: http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5262

He trained at Aikikai Hombu, and was a 7th Dan last time that I looked. I always seem to miss him when I'm in Okinawa, but a couple of my guys have trained with him and recommend him highly.

Best,

Chris

You can contact them through http://jibadojo.tumblr.com/hajime, I beleive. Last time I contacted them in Japanese they were very helpful, but I don't know how their English is. Alternatively, I'd recommend contacting Michael Veltri (http://www.dcaikido.com/), he can put you in touch with them.

Best,

Chris
