This article entitled "Still going strong after 10 years, the 'babushkas fight club'" (http://siberiantimes.com/sport/others/features/f0092-still-going-strong-after-10-years-the-babushkas-fight-club/) features a Yoshinkan aikido dojo in Siberia, where more than a dozen elderly ladies are celebrating their 10 year anniversary of the dojo.

From the article: "'We train with pleasure,' said 77-year-old Svetlana Tyukova, who has already survived a heart attack. 'We've already devoted 10 years to it. I can't just give it up. When we were told we would get a black belt one day, we were laughing and didn't really believe it."
