Re: Aikido in Schools

This is being presented as a credited course in the school, like PE, math or science, not an after school program. Extra curricular activities at public schools are given a little more flexibility. Chitara also teaches an after school program, Lifeskills 101. Everything from changing a tire to self defense and aikido. Because it is after school and not directly called "Aikido" the school allows it. There are ways to get around it of course. It would be great to get an "Aikido" course accredited by a public/private school. Keep working at it Chitara!
