Aikido in Mississippi

For a long time, there has been relatively little Aikido in Mississippi - at least relatively little that could be found.  We were all doing our own private things in our own little private ghettos with a few of our own people.  But now there are several established aikido groups throughout the state and we seem to be interacting with each other more.  So if you are looking for an aikido class, here are some starting points...
