Aikido in Houston?

Anyone ever been been involved with the Kitae Dojo (Jiyushinkai Aikibudo)here in Houston? If not, anyone have a dojo (particuarly on the south side) to recommend?

It's not exactly 'south side', but it's south of SOMEWHERE.

Not that I know of, although there's a pretty good Aikido instructor around I-10 if i remember correctly. I heard from Sami that a good Aikido instructor is hard to come by in houston. I'll have to ask him for a good school in houston.

Seriously, I have friends in Arizona who've been involved with aikido for a long time. I kinda envy the camaraderie they have with their dojo-mates. Plus, it'd be hella fun swinging around and dodging jo sticks. :icon_bigg

Yeah, I'm not looking to get involved with any system that is into trophy winning. I want old-school discipline and tradition. Sigh. Why is it that all the nifty places are always on the West side?

Good luck with finding traditional, everything is a system now adays...classifying people's skills with colored belts, not a bad idea but going up one belt doesn't make you a better fighter, i've seen a white belt kick a green belts because he perfected one kata and used it at the right time. Are you just looking into learning Aikido?

I've been flirting with the idea for well over a year, and I've talked a lot with friends who practice it --enough to have a fair idea what's expected and involved. They study Jiyushinkai Aikibudo at the main dojo in Phoenix. Kitae is a satellite dojo, and Dorris Sensei comes highly recommended. . .it's just on the west side. And I know I shouldn't complain about distance when I'm looking for such specific qualities. . . I was mostly hoping that someone on MH practiced there. And rode his/her bike there. From the South side. Reguarly. :laughing6

I'd go but i'm up north, plus i'm a workaholic. Good thing to have well-informed friends...i'm more into airborn and infantry which is a basic judo style chock holds and arm locks etc. and a whole lot of stamina at the local base. You should check out Vietnamiese Viet Vo Dao style...i think its southern, its alot cheaper, and it has real life practical defensive use.
