Offering Programs To Other Aikidoka

7/22/13 OFFERING PROGRAMS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY
Doing Aikido classes for vets with CRPTSD myself, locally is a good start but there are thousands of vets who can benefit. To bring Aikido to as many as possible, we want to support other aikidoka and veteran”Ēs organizations in starting a program modeled on the Keganin No Senshi approach.
Writing and publishing the book, doing presentations at seminars and conferences and putting up the website have been the first steps. Reaching out to others anywhere in the country is what we are committed to now.
On the website [www.keganinnosenshi.org] we describe what we have to offer in areas of;
TRAINING
Initial Week End Training Seminars
Annual Followup
Major Area Seminars
LOCAL PARTNERSHIPS
Aikidoka
Other Organizations
Locating Partners in Your Area
OFF-DOJO SITING
RECRUITING
A PROVEN CLASS FORMAT FOR A SUCCESSFUL CRPTSD ADAPTED AIKIDO CLASS.
FUND RAISING
EVALUATION
FOLLOW UP; SUPPORT, TRAINING
COST
AND MOST IMPORTANT, that we will always be available whenever there are questions, problems, or need support.
It is our intention to help start locally autonomous programs, with it being our role to provide the support and resources they need to succeed. Vets with CRPTSD may be faced with a range of psychological, physical and spiritual issues. While the KNS program is specifically designed to be appropriate for these vets, we also want the local programs to be compatible with the style and approach of the sensei teaching.
We have made connections in CT, NJ, VA and New Orleans. Our most successful collaboration has been with Aikido for Veterans out of Boulder, CO who conducted a major seminar last August and are in the process of establishing classes at a US Army, Warrior in Transition Battalion.
We welcome the interest of anyone who sees the value of Aikido for vets and wants to explore the possibility of starting classes in their area.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
