This article entitled "Tapestry Family Services Offers Unique After School Program" (http://www.ukiahdailyjournal.com/ci_12201363?source=rss) describes Gayle Fillman sensei's after-school aikido program for foster family children in Ukiah, California.
From the article: "After each Aikido practice, Fillman and Tapestry activities counselors Amy Aikman-Brower and Jeffry Harris give the children much-deserved kudos. Every child, one-by-one is given their moment of recognition, with a special emphasis on acts of honor, compassion, courage and integrity."

Jun, thank you - when I checked before leaving work, the Daily Journal still had not uploaded this article about the work my sensei does in our small town.
She has taught aikido and gymnastics in this rural community for over 30 years, always seeking ways to reach out to and work with kids and adults who have special needs, and she has touched so very many lives in the process.
