Searching for dojos in Edmonton & area

Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone knows of any dojos in the Edmonton, Alberta area other than the two listed in the dojo search. I am a shodan with 6 years of experience in Tenshinkai style so I would prefer to continue to practice in the same style if possible. My first step though is just trying to find out what all my options are. I hope members here can help me out.

*bows*

Carl

Only familiar with two dojos in Edmonton. You might try attending a Saturday one at the U of A - if Earnie Ball is leading that one you might be able to ask about practicing in Wetaskiwin, but it's all Aikikai if I recall correctly...

Re: Searching for dojos in Edmonton & area

Hi Carl. I run an Aikido dojo in Edmonton that is part of the California Aikido Association. I have trained in the Tenshinkai style for several years in Edmonton. The CAA is directly connected to World Aikikai and while there may be some differences in application, the end result is still the same. Please feel free to contact me at tomnlee@telus.net for more information about the Northern Alberta Aikido club.

I have trained at the U of A a bit this summer and I didn't find it much to my liking. I don't think I've met Ernie Ball, only Bill Heron and Kenji Yoshimi I think. Wetaskiwin is a touch too far to be convenient I think though. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Now this is the kind of response I was looking for, I've heard there were other dojos in the city but could never find any information about any of them. I'll drop you a mail soon.
