Dear Budokas,

I am new here so please if you could tell me if there is a dojo here in Alabama. I used to train in Gadsden about 2 or 3 years ago, and trained from 1997-1999. I am a 9th kyu and want to kno if ther is a dojo here. Lost contact with my former teacher, named Yancey Walker.

If you know anyone who comes here in my area, or within say 50 miles of me, I;d like to know about it. Thanks and take care.

Take care,
