Aikido in Ho Chi Minh City

Hi guys,

Can anyone provide me with a list of dojo in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as Saigon) with the addresses and contacts?

So far I have managed to visit one but I was told the average number of dojo in each district here is two.

Thanking you aniticipation.

Hi Jun,

The dojo listed on aikiweb does not exist anymore. Went to the address and found that it is actually a private residence.

Re: Aikido in Ho Chi Minh City

Send an e-mail to Sensei Dang Thong Phong of the International Tenshinkai Aikido Federation, founded in Viet Nam, at Tenshinkai.com. He has many former students still in country.

Thanks, Dr.Seiser, for the advice

I did months ago but did not get a reply from him. Anyway, thanks to my lucky star, the first dojo that I stepped into at HCMC belongs to the Tenshinkai group but here they call themselves "Tenryu" instead.

The dojo is located in a community center and the address is 70-72, Nguyen Van Troi Street, HCMC, Vietnam. Good training and very warm and friendly dojo. I had 3 training sessions there and enjoyed myself tremendously.

Thanks, David -- I've taken the dojo out of the database.

In the future, please note that it would help me if you could submit a dojo deletion request through the Edit/Delete Aikido Dojo link at the top of the search engine. That'll put your request into the queue.

Thanks,

Re: Aikido in Ho Chi Minh City

Thank you, Dr. Seiser, for the information. I will contact them on my next visit here. I'm leaving for home today.

HCMC is just about two hours by air from Kuala Lumpur. If you planning for an aikido tour in Southeast Asia, do drop me a mail. By the way, your second book has just arrived at our local book stores.

Regards

David Y

Thank you for your kind offer, but I have no plans to return in country. I do know the Phong Sensei returns when he can.

Hopefully people will find our second book useful and look forward to our third (on weapons).

Thank you Dr. Seiser for posting these. When I use the Aikiweb "dojo search" however, I don't see them listed. Other than the mailing address, would you have any phone numbers, email addresses and/or website addresses?
