    Greetings from Lake Tahoe,
    I have a business associate in the Kansas City/Overland Park area that is interested in studying Aikido. He is in his late 30's and in generally good health. I have recommended Aikido over other styles as I think it more appropriately matches his personality and goals in training.

    Any recommendations you can offer would be most appreciated.

    Respectfully,
    Kevin Schaller

    Kevin:

    I would recommend Larry Graham's dojo in KC. I've met and practiced with him on several occasions and, in addition to being a very skilled aikidoka, he's a really nice guy - as are his students.

    Kansas City Aikido School
    Instructor: Larry D. Graham
    Overland Park Comm. Center
    Room 001
    6300 West 87th Street
    Overland Park, Kansas 66208
    913-362-6951

    Best of luck to you and your friend!

    also, go to http://www.aikiweb.com and look at the dojo search there- it's pretty extensive... I was surprised to find my own dojo on there.

    Of course, if you do go to the AikiWeb Dojo Search Engine and find that your dojo is not on there or the information is outdated, please let me know using the submission page at:

    I would greatly appreciate it!

    Default Thank You

    Thanks so much for the referral.

    My friend has visited Mr. Graham's dojo and is intending to study there. What's funny, is that I had described what I considered an ideal dojo to look for in my early discussions with my friend, and Mr. Graham's dojo is just about a perfect example of what I described.

    Thanks again for the excellent referral.
    Merry Christmas,
    Kevin Schaller

    That's great! Please wish your friend "Good Keiko!" for me, and hopefully we can practice together at a future seminar.
