"Just tying my shoes for kids can change their lives"

Here's an article on aikido practitioner AlejAndro Anastasio in Boise, ID entitled "Just tying my shoes for kids can change their lives".

From the article: "How does one start an aikido studio? In most cases you have to have a lot of years of training underneath you. Typically you have third-, fourth- or fifth-degree black belt rank and you are known to be a very good aikido practitioner. I didn't have any of those, I simply had a lot of love for aikido. At that time I had no teacher, no affiliation and really no rank other than a couple of years training. So I took a big chance buying the building to run a martial arts studio. Up to that point I had about three years training in aikido."
