"Aikido Kenkyukai Santa Barbara Still Kicking as Nonprofit"

Here's an article entitled "Aikido Kenkyukai Santa Barbara Still Kicking as Nonprofit" which highlights Lia Suzuki sensei's Aikido Kenkyukai Santa Barbara dojo in California.

From the article: "How does going from trying to run a for-profit dojo as a business differ from raising funds for a nonprofit? "It allows me to tell the American public what a dojo should really be," Suzuki said. "Here, dojo owners are forced to focus more on making a profit, unlike those in Japan and France." [...] Using Facebook, YouTube and other social media, Suzuki is raising funds with the aid of Aikido Kenkyukai’s Web site. She said she raised about $1,000 in donations just using Facebook during Memorial Day weekend."
