Hello, Need help on Navajo Rez. teaching children
Just found the site while searching for info on aikido. My wife and I live on a ranch here in NM. We have 2 small children ages 7 and 11. we would like to get them invovled in some type of martial arts, but haven't a clue on how to go about it. While at a law enforcement accadamy during my National Park Service days I was introduced to a little bit of Aikido. I loved it, but being a ranger I was always way out in the sticks and never could get invovlved with a dojo. I am now concerned for my children as the rez has started to see more and more gang activity and of course drugs and alcohol is a problem also. My question is how do I start teaching my children the art of aikido way out here iin the middle of nowhere? Can it be done through DVDs? Are there any DVDs that will help us teach? If we can find DVDs that we can use to teach with, there are other children out here that I know could benifit from aikido. am I asking for too much?
