Meep meep.

Allo. I'm not actually studying aikido at the moment, due to time and financial constraints, but I definitely plan to as soon as possible.

I am, however, studying tai sabaki (I'm sure most of you are familiar with the term) karate, a hard/soft style based on shotokan karate with a healthy dose of jujitsu. Aikido would definitely compliment this, and my teacher has encouraged me to pursue my interest.

I've also studied tai chi, but only kata practice for meditative purposes. No push hands or anything like that.

I go to school in New Orleans, though I'm often in central Georgia for holidays. Unfortunately, the closest aikido dojos to the Macon, GA area all seem to be in or near Atlanta, which is quite a drive, and I have no car of my own.

Hopefully this summer I'll be able to stay in New Orleans and train with the dojo downtown, which I've visited and got a pretty good vibe from.

I'm a CS major, and a soon-to-be-official Japanese minor, though I've only got a single semester of the language under my belt.

For those familiar with karate, I'm up to Heian Yondan, my sixth kata (we do a soft kata unique to us, and kihon kata, which is similar to taikyoku shodan.) I'm also learning Heian Sandan Bo.

I'll probably mostly be a lurker, especially until I actually start studying aikido.

Re: Meep meep.

I understand you problem my friend.Is there anyone interested in teaching Aikido in Macon? I mean,come on. Macon can not be that boring? Someone please get the courage and strength to atleast try to teach in this town. What's this about a Aikido instructor in Warner Robins? I heard of one that teaches Tomiki Aikido there.But from what I was told,it is a sport form and not a tradictional form.Also,this other Sensei does not not have a listing at all.Besides I only seek local training under a tradictional form of Aikido and not some sport.O-Sensei never intended Aikido to be used as a sport.

Re: Meep meep.

Read some of the posts by Tomiki and Shodokan stylists here on Aikiweb. Better yet, read some of Tomiki sensei's works. Keep an open mind and get in the dojo.

I myself come from a lineage that would be considered a softer style. I love it and am exceedingly happy with what we do. However, I would jump at the chance to train with a qualified instructor from the Tomiki lineage.

Re: Meep meep.

(sigh) another resurrection.... the OP was thinking about aikido 8 yrs ago and the penultimate poster logged on once, almost 18 months ago, with a query.

It's kind of telling when you actually remember the post when it first came up....
(I do)

Play nice, practice hard, but remember, this is a MARTIAL art!
