    Hello,

    Looks like your not getting any hits here. You might try searching the major Aikido organizations, such as:

    -Yoshinkan (International Yoshinkai Federation)

    -Aikikai

    -Aikido Schools of Ueshiba (ASU - Saotome/Ikeda Sensei)

    -Aikido Association of America (I think) - AAA, Toyoda Sensei

    -Tomiki Aikido

    -Shin shin toitsu (ki no kenkyukai - Tohei Sensei)


    Or, for other aiki arts:

    -Daito ryu Aikijujutsu, Roppokai

    -Daito ryu Aikijujutsu, Kodokai

    -Yanagi ryu Aikijujsu (Angier Soke)

    -Aikibujutsu Tanren Kenkyukai (Aiki Buken - Obata SoShihan)


    There are probably many others that are not popping into mind right now, but these organizations/groups might be a good place to ask around for local representation.

    You may have to travel a bit if you want to learn something!

    Wink Gentle Wind Dojo

    Jason,
    Just out of curiosity, have you visited the Gentle Wind Dojo there in Baton Rouge? They are the only aikido dojo I know of in your immediate area. I'm just curious if you heard some of the same stories I did.

    Default Louisiana Aikido

    I just moved from Louisiana - there were two aikido schools, both of the Tomiki style. The Gentle Wind Dojo and the LSU aikido club. I never got into aikido much but I had freinds that did, and both schools had good people in them.

    Guys,
    Thanks but I was just wondering how many "Louisianians" were here. I am quite content with what I am doing.

    Thanks.

    Post Aikijutsu in Louisiana

    I would just like to post a dojo that is availible in Louisiana. It is not Dito-ryu although that is our parent style. The name of the dojo is Asechikan and the style is Shindo-ryu. Anyone in the area of Hammond LA interested in learning Aikijutsu please feel free to contact me by e-mail, or my Shihan by his web site at www.shindoryu.com.

    Gentle Wind dojo in baton rouge is closed, one of Ms. Becky's students from Gentle Wind has an aikido program at his dojo, Wall to Wall Martial Arts, on Hwy. 16 in Watson,La. As far I know, it is the only Tomiki Aikido Program in the Louisiana/Mississippi region.

    I'm a Louisianian, and yes there are few.
