"Somali Star Rising"

Posted 2006-11-09 09:30:41 by Jun Akiyama

Here's an article entitled "Somali Star Rising" that highlights Kevin Cunningham in Buffalo, New York, who has been teaching aikido to Somali and Sudanese refugee children in that city for two and a half years. "It's a very appropriate art for anyone, but particularly for young people who are at-risk, who live around things that are difficult sometimes to blend with," he says.
