This article entitled "Students in Cecil County learning Aikido for self discipline" (http://www.abc2news.com/dpp/sports/students-in-cecil-county-learning-aikido-for-self-discipline) gives us the story of at-risk students from alternative learning program in Elkton, MD who has started learning aikido.

From the article: Director Lou Guertin says, "they're suspended from their regular classroom or home school so they are with us, it's still a public school."
"I realized that these kids really need a focus, they need to know how to blend in their society and learn how to work together, so I figured Aikido would be the best fit."
