I am just starting to get interested in the aikido art. I have been reading alot on the whole art and find it quite intriguing to who i am and what it is all about. I live in michigan near the detroit area. Currently i am looking somewhere to start. I enjoy the aspect of aikido and what it is.
Any suggestions would be helpful. Not a whole lot around here offered in aikido.http://www.anshinkandojo.com/aikido.htm

1. what to look for when searching for the right dojo.
2. what differant direcitons there are in aikido. (i enjoy being able to manipulate peoples movements)
3. what books would be beneficial for me to start reading as a newbie to the scene.
