Article: "Aikido instructor promotes nonviolence"
Posted 1/19/2010 11:01am [from Jun Akiyama]

This article entitled "Aikido instructor promotes nonviolence" highlights Lia Suzuki sensei of Santa Barbara and her Aikido Kenkyukai Santa Barbara dojo. From the article: "In 2007, she operated a for-profit dojo on State Street until the rent became too high. It went from $1,200 to $6,500 a month. "When I lost the dojo, I had to take a step back and decide what to do next," she said. She continued to do deep-tissue massage, which she had learned earlier and practiced as a side job. However, her senior students wanted her to come back to teaching the martial art in which she excelled. "I was doing the type of aikido no one was doing in the United States," she said."
