Hi, I am new 2 this forum and new 2 Aikido. I am interested in joining a Aikido school, there is a Manseido school in my area. Anyone have any experience with this style, how is it different?? I am located in Vancouver and the teacher at the school is John Zitnik?? Any info?? I like the school but I can only make 2 classes a week due 2 school and work. Thanks, Francis furlong.
Don't know much about the style or the teacher other than to say that the founder was one of Ueshiba M.'s pre-war deshi. He was uchideshi for a year and eventually promoted to 9th Dan by Ueshiba M. in 1961. They are not part of the Aikikai but then that is not unusual for pre-war deshi.
