I'm going to start training in the art of AiKiBuDo in a dojo in Dallas,TX. Could anyone give me advice because I'm a very shy person and really want to excel in this art. I'm going to observe a view classes and then hopefully sign up within the next two to three weeks.

There are alot of diffirent 'Aikibudo's" out there. They range from styles that originate in early Ueshiba-ha Daito Ryu (Aikibudo). Some come from Yoseikan Budo. Then there are some that are Daito Ryu (Daito Ryu Aikibudo, Hakuho Ryu Aikibudo), then there are some that are modern, eccletic arts. These run the gamut from really good, to just awful, with absolutly no Aiki whatsoever.

If you have a webpage or a style name, it might help people to answer your question.
