This article entitled "Off the grid a Aiki Farms; living life rooted in the natural world"
highlights Bob Burns' Aiki Farms
in Ledyard, CT.
From the article: "A day at the farm started at 5 a.m. with Zazen mediation and Aikido training. Zazen meditation involves Buddhist philosophies and clearing the mind through silent meditation and focused breathing; this was followed by Aikido and Iaido. Aikido, said Burns, is a martial art that teaches one to “defend with harmony.” Iaido is another Japanese martial art based on sword use. He teaches a number of students, from children to adults, with some becoming resident students."
