Holland, Michigan (or Zeeland)

Hi, I am moving to the Holland, Michigan area. I am looking for people who might want to practice Aikido in the area. Their seems to be a few dojos in th Grand Rapids area, but none on the west coast. If anyone knows of a dojo that isn't listed, a club, or some place people are practicing please let me know. My email address is aikirhino@ymail.com.

Thanks
Ryan

Hi Ryan,

If you are willing to schlep to Grand Rapids, I'd recommend Kyoseikan dojo. I've done seminars there and they're nice people.

For closer to Kzoo, I'd suggest trying the local YMCA and whatever colleges are near you.

The forums here say that in 2003 the local Y offered aikido. dunno if this is still the case:

Community colleges, and larger 4-year universities often have aikido classes as part of their curriculum.

Try Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo Valley Community College, Kalamzoo College...

A quick google search brings up the following dojos. A lot of these seem to be multiple arts dojos, so aikido, bjj, tai chi, etc. Also, I have no clue what school of aikido they teach, if that matters to you one way or another.

Good luck! Where are you moving from, if I may ask? Within Michigan? From another state?

Re: Holland, Michigan (or Zeeland)

I'm moving from Taipei, Taiwan where I've been living for the past 8 years. I've been studying Aikido for most of that time. My intention is ,without finding a local dojo, is to start up a small group. Perhaps someone might see this message. :P Thanks for the suggestions.

Ryan

Carrie,

Thanks for your kind words about our dojo. We still offer Zazen 4 days a week and maybe will see you again soon. I hit Ryan up on facebook since I remember when he stopped in to train with us before we had the dojo. Best to you all, Dave Mata
