aikido in/near Traverse City Michigan?

Hey all,

My web searches have proven mostly fruitless in trying to find aikido around Traverse City Michigan. The only hint I've found is mention of a yoshinkan class at the university. Unfortunately neither the instructor's name or contact info is given.

I head up that way a couple times a year to visit family and thought it might be cool to train while there (as the family is pretty boring).

If anybody knows of a class or instructor up that way could you please pass me their info?

Thanks,
Bronson

Doing a Yellow Pages search has yielded this and this both of which leave me with a bad taste in my mouth There are others that aren't so bad but no aikido to be found

Wink Road Trip in Michigan

Hey Bronson,

If you're doing a road trip why don't you swing by the Maple Street Y.

Regards.

I will....eventually I'm up on the rotation for teaching Monday nights in July. That leaves me with one night a week without aikido and that's the night I take iaido It looks like I won't get any free time until August. I definitely want to get together though. I recently received my shiny new Kingfisher bokken and want to put some dents in it...or try to anyway
