Ai symbol Getting back into Aikido

My name is John and I've recently moved to Orlando, Fl. I took Aikido under a Fugakukai (or Karl Geis-ryu, or Kihara whatever you want label it) instructer back in Mississippi before moving here. I was wondering if anyone knew of any Aikido instuctors who teach similair to what I've learned. If not, I'll expand into Aikikai, there's plenty of those around. I just thought I'd try to re-connect with something more familiar first

Hello all

Just joined Aikiweb. Maybe I can get a little help here. I just moved to Orlando area Florida, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me get back into Fugakukai (or KiHara, or Karl Geis-ryu, whatever you wanna label it) Aikido. Know any members that can point me in the right direction?

Re: Getting back into Aikido

for anyone reading this, ONE of those posts was meant to be put in the introduction section, but somehow ended up as a reply to my own previous statement...weird.

I was wondering.

I live pretty far south of you, and I don't know anybody in Orlando since Baker sensei passed away. Good luck in your search!

Re: Getting back into Aikido

Re: Getting back into Aikido

Vero and Sarasota are both too far away to travel on a daily basis for him. But I know there are quite a few dojos in the Orlando metropolitan area. Just check the dojo search engine here and you'll find a few. Shop around and find which schools you like.

Re: Getting back into Aikido

Try Jose Andrade Sensei in Orlando. He is a very giving man and a terrific instructor. I truly enjoyed my experience with him and several of his students at the last Aiki Expo.
