The Fredericksburg, Virginia, daily newspaper recently ran an article (http://www.fredericksburg.com/News/FLS/2008/112008/11212008/426112/index_html?page=1) about Aikido in Fredericksburg's dojo (http://www.aikidoinn.com/index.php?page=shindojo) now under construction using "green" design and construction methods. The Shin Dojo should be open in Spring 2009 and will offer a forum for international and regional Aikido seminars, an expansion of AIF's uchideshi program, and numerous volunteer oportunities.

That is great all around. And, only 4 hours away. Might have to attend a seminar there.

Best of luck to the Shin Dojo.

As a longtime "green" proponent (made my first solar cell in 1967), I applaud the dojo taking this step..
