Same question as David. There are many Aikido schools, belonging to various organizations.

http://www.seikeikan.com/heiseikan is the Yoshinkan school in town.

Not too much so, Just starting to get an early idea of what's available out there.

Finishing up community college later this year (or early next year) and I plan on heading out to the university of advancing technology after that, so going to look into a new dojo out there. Nothing too immediate, just reaching out and feeling around to see whats what.


Scottsdale one looks pretty cool, would be interesting to train under someone who's trained under someone who trained directly with O'Sensei (see quote below if that sounded confusing)

Quote:
Who is the teacher?
The chief instructor is Glenn Brooks, Shidoin, 4th Degree Black Belt. His 23 years of study was under one of the world's greatest teachers, the late Akira Tohei Shihan, 8th degree black belt. Tohei sensei trained in Japan directly under Aikido's founder, Morihei Ueshiba.

I would suggest Jiyushinkai in Tempe, but then I am partial to them since I am a member.

I've also attended classes at UAT.
