My Year-End Goal: $10,000 | Deadline: December 31, 2016


Over $25,000 worth of scholarships provided, thanks to you!

Dear Friends,

It has become my custom to run two fundraisers for Aikido Kenkyukai International, USA ("AKI-USA") each year: One leading up to my birthday and one at the end of the year.

Thanks to you, we have been able to do the following:
  • Provide over $25,000 worth of scholarships to youth and veterans who would not otherwise have been able to participate in our programs.
  • Expanded, with dojos now not only in Santa Barbara, CA, but also Los Angeles, and Philadelphia, PA.
  • Offer Training Abroad opportunities to youth.
BonnPartyLast September an 18-year-old an alumnus of our Youth Program and current member of our Adult Program accompanied me on my seminar trip to Europe. He participated in adult classes alongside many black belts, taking the majority of the ukemi (demonstration throwing). He also assisted teaching youth classes there, experiencing the similarities and differences between our dojo and those in other countries. The relationships he forged and memories he made on the trip will no doubt last a lifetime.

We also launched our Teacher Training Program and our "Deshi Programs" (Intensive Immersion Programs), with participants from the United Kingdom and Germany so far.

These programs and scholarships require funding of course. And you can make a difference.

Any amount helps.
