Where are good aikido uchi deshi programs in America?

Uchi-deshi programs usually do not exist in the United States. Depending on the state that you live in, there are rules that buisness have to follow, and people can not live at the buisness because it is not a residence. However, there are some people that come from Japan that visit the Dojo, and the Dojo will just secretly let them sleep in the dojo, take a shower, and all that sort of thing.

The more common things today that I have seen is you provide assistance to the dojo in which you can study the art free of cost. Maybe you have duties that you do for the Sensei, you clean the dojo, maybe wash everyone's keikogi's ? There are a list of tasks that you may do however the traditional Uchi-deshi as it is in Japan really does not exist here in the US. At the end of the day, the Aikidoka goes home and comes back the next day.
