Hi all,

Been training for six years now. During that time I've heard mention of stories about people who have started something where they teach aikido to corporations or certain businesses during lunch breaks and things like that to relieve stress and to give them some activity to improve their overall feeling. Have also heard stories of people who apply Aikido principles to everyday life and teach seminars and give talks and things like that to employees and also everyday people too. Was wonderinfg if anyone has also heard of this and if they know who may be doing it. I've found it very hard to find any information on this and I'm wondering if its because it is only happening on the west coast or somewhere else far from here. I'm very curious in these things because I will be graduating soon and refuse to get sucked up into the corporate world like I'm expected to where I'll be forced to stop training for several years as i work 18 hour days. I'd rather do something that i feel is useful and can actually improve people's lives and this is one of the possibilities that interests me. Thanx for any help.

Hi zen711,

As for your question, you may want to check out Aiki Extensions at http://www.aiki-extensions.org. They're a group of people who want to take and apply aikido principles "off the mat."
