Article: "The liberal arts throw it down in Aikido"
Posted 4/25/2007 11:56pm [from Jun Akiyama]

This article entitled "The liberal arts throw it down in Aikido" highlights Kimberly Richardson sensei of Seattle, WA, who recently gave a lecture at Middlebury College in Vermont as part of a symposium on martial and liberal arts. "Richardson's talk focused on her experience with Aikido and how it had impacted her views on life. Prior to martial arts, her focus had been dance. After an incident where she saw a woman on the floor hurling people around seemingly effortlessly, she became entranced and developed a love for Aikido. [...] Throughout her lecture Richardson, without missing a beat, would talk about her philosophy and demonstrate techniques while throwing around two of her assistants on stage."
