Youtube: Nice promotional video of a dojo in Abu Dhabi

I just happened to stumble upon this wonderful promotional video of an aikido dojo in Abu Dhabi: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAiS2GunQi8

I was a surprised to see how the atmosphere is so similar to dojos where I train, even though Abu Dhabi is a different culture than my culture.

I find the culture to be a little different in every dojo depending on teacher and style, and dojo tend to reflect characteristics of the countries they are in, but there's always some universal element of "aikido culture" present. Training with women is always interesting in muslim countries though.

Ichi Go, Ichi Ei!

I was interested to see more Tissier sensei influences in some of the technique styles.
