Smile Hello from Orlando

Hi Everyone, My name is Mil. I was a student of Aikido under Late Sensei Baker. Due to the 15 hrs. day in my full time job(Flying), I stopped practicing since 1998. I live in Orlando. I am looking for a Daito Ryu Class within 100 miles here. But not having any luck. I was lurking in this site last few days. Finally decided to join in. Thanks

Re: Hello from Orlando

Contact Don Modesto on this board. I think he is a little further than 100 miles, but try him anyway. He may well be able to help you.

Best,
Ron

Re: Hello from Orlando

Hello Mohammed. Ed Baker Sensei was a very interesting man, and an excellent teacher. You were fortunate to have trained with him, and he is gone before his time. I first encountered him in the early 70's in a YMCA in Orlando. No DaitoRyu near Orlando that I'm aware of. There are, however, several good Aikido teachers from diverse backgrounds, so you're not completely out of luck. I hope you find something to your liking.

Thanks. Yes, I was very fortunate to train under him. He taught me to meditate in a very unique way(bubble rise from the deep). One of those short meditation session with him, I had a strange undescribable experience. Because of his encouragement I continued to practice meditation. I teach Silent Illumination Ch'an meditation now. Thanks to Aikido & Sensei Baker for directing me to that path. There Are more funny & strange things he performed for us. Hope some of his student's post those incident's. Also Sensei Peter Easton taught us. I think he practiced Daito ryu in his younger days. Thanks again

Re: Hello from Orlando

Mil,

Welcome from Nashville, Tn.

Harmony does not mean that there are no conflicts,
for the dynamic spiral of existence embraces both extremes.

Hi, Mohammed. My sensei was a student of Sensei Baker. When I was 6th kyu, we all took a road trip from Fort Myers to Orlando and trained with him on a saturday. I only got to train with him that one time, but he definitely impressed me not only as a good aikidoka, but as a good man as well. My sensei and I were just talking about Sensei Baker last night! I think there might be an aikijutsu school in Naples ( a Sensei Cook, a believe ), but I think that might be too far from you. Good luck in finding a dojo, and welcome to aikiweb!
