Here's an article entitled "Somali Star Rising" (http://artvoice.com/issues/v5n41/somali_star_rising) that highlights Kevin Cunningham in Buffalo, New York, who has been teaching aikido to Somali and Sudanese refugee children in that city for two and a half years. "It's a very appropriate art for anyone, but particularly for young people who are at-risk, who live around things that are difficult sometimes to blend with," he says.

Very cool.

Helped start fiorst Ethiopian dojo, including work with AIDS orphans - I will pass this on as will mean a lot to my freinds there.
