Have you tried "Dojo search", under Databases? I just tried it and got a bunch of responses for Michigan.

Hey Bob,

Unfortunately the closest places to you that I know of are in/near Grand Rapids. Maybe some of the folks that are in G.R. know of some dojo/clubs closer to you.

Good luck.

Have you tried contacting The Toyoda Center in Grand Rapids. Blaine Feyen Sensei is a nice guy and he and/or his students will have much more info on the aikido scene up there.
