Excellent body of work. I was one of those kids as well and have been sharing the principles of Aikido with at risk kids for over 16 years now mostly within the California Youth Authority System and in Recovery Centers.

I suppose I should start documenting this so when sceptics ask why learn Aikido... I could point them toward what you, Ellis, and George have done among others.

Thanks for sharing everyone.

One of the highest principles of Aikido IMHO is to be a nice guy.

I for one know what is is like to be a not a nice guy and I like to sleep at night.
