Article: "Promoting Peace Through Martial Arts"
Posted 2/08/2007 11:40pm [from Jun Akiyama]

Here's another article, this one entitled "Promoting Peace Through Martial Arts" which describes the "Children's Peace Project" started by Kristy Gano at the Bowling Green State University. "In essence, the whole project was born in my mind through someone else's experience with an abusive relationship," Ganoe said. "Essentially the purpose ... is to develop self-defense skills through the martially-applicable skills we teach in the class." What do people here think of these kinds of initiatives to take aikido "off the mat"?
