A visit to Midwest Aikido Center

We visited some old friends at Midwest Aikido Centre while in Chicago recently. We had never seen the dojo before. It is one of the most beautiful facilities we have ever seen.

The dojo was built on the site of a former supermarket, to give you some idea of the size of the space.
The tatami area is huge, with no pillars. The interior is beautifully finished. It is an inspired, and inspiring place.
