Chicago Aikikai? (website out of date)

I'm visiting in Chicago area, looking to fit in a some training while I'm here. The Chicago Aikikai website is out of date - listing past seminar dates, etc, and the Contact Us form gives a page-not-found error.

Does anyone here know if weekend classes run as advertised on the website? (Saturday 1-2:30pm & Sunday 11am-12:30pm). Any recommendations as to whether Saturday or Sunday is better day to go?

Re: Chicago Aikikai? (website out of date)

Have you tried calling the phone number listed on the website or sending an email directly to the address given? While the site is somewhat out of date (listing June seminars), I have seen far worse in the way of out of date dojo websites...and I think the problem with the Contact Us form may be in the formatting of the URL (there is something strange there that I can't quite describe).

Take Matt's advice first. If that doesn't work, I have a couple friends who train there and I can try to get a hold of them.

Didn't get a response to my email, but weekend classes are definitely happening...(and the training was great fun!)

If you are on Facebook you can contact them through their page. Many dojos now rely more on FB than a regular website.

It is the duty of the strong to protect the weak.
