Aikido in the News

"Teen felt ‘degraded' after teacher backed aikido student's request to avoid touching females on religious grounds."

If it were my school - I would have not let him join. I have come across more than a few Muslim students over the years and there has never been a problem. In fact, I remember some Christian guy had a problem once - thought it was against god or something so he quit.
