Hermosillo is capital city of Sonora State here in Mexico, the largest city with Aikido Dojos near is Tucson, Az. 240Mi from here..
There are Dojos located in other States such as Chihuahua, (Chihuahua Aikikai), but you spent a lot of time traveling over there, I think 6 Hours or more, instead of 3.5Hrs to Tucson..
I agree with you, be the lucky one sometimes represents a huge responsability, but you got a lot of satisfaction...
Really, I'd like to be in your shoes, since I was a kid I considere Aikido not only as a art, but a lifestyle.. representing how can u defeat an enemy, not only an attacker, I mean, problems or situations on your daily life through peace.. Learning how to deal with all this must be wonderful
Well that's the spirit of this art, ain't?
