Olive Silva to be recognized: 60th anniversary of Hawaii aikido

This article entitled "Olive Silva to be recognized as part of 60th anniversary of aikido in Hawaii" highlights Olive Silva, 90, who started training in aikido 59 years ago in Hawaii.

From the article: Koichi Tohei arrived from Japan in 1953 and traveled through Hawaii to teach and establish dojos. Silva was working as a recreation director in Haliimaile in 1954 and saw a flier for a self-defense class.

As a tough, self-described "tomboy lady," she signed up and went to Wailuku to meet the new Maui aikido teacher, Shinichi Suzuki, and join the newly formed aikido group training at the Wailuku Gymnasium.
