I've been training for 6 years and evesdropping for a little under that. I don't recall my rank exactly, maybe 2 kyu, not because my teacher doesn't have to pull my teeth out to get me to test and then sometimes I go and crash my bike instead
I train at an unafilliated dojo called Two Cranes Aikido in Seattle, WA. U.S. Our dojo cho is Kimberly Richarson, she has her rank from Mary Heiny, and has also spent conciderable time with Saotome, Ikeda, Tom Read, and others, so the flavor is dynamic.
Also, I'm looking for a way to contact a moderator because the note about waiting for moderator approval flashed very quickly on my screen after my first post, so I didn't think it went up and I retyped it. But I think I like the one that I retyped better, so maybe they'll see this post and just delete the very first post that I made.
Looking forward to discussions.
