Article: "Aikido Kenkyukai Santa Barbara Still Kicking as Nonprofit"
Posted 9/16/2010 12:00am [from Jun Akiyama]

Here's an article entitled "Aikido Kenkyukai Santa Barbara Still Kicking as Nonprofit" which highlights Lia Suzuki sensei's Aikido Kenkyukai Santa Barbara dojo in California. From the article: "How does going from trying to run a for-profit dojo as a business differ from raising funds for a nonprofit? "It allows me to tell the American public what a dojo should really be," Suzuki said. "Here, dojo owners are forced to focus more on making a profit, unlike those in Japan and France." [...] Using Facebook, YouTube and other social media, Suzuki is raising funds with the aid of Aikido Kenkyukai’s Web site. She said she raised about $1,000 in donations just using Facebook during Memorial Day weekend."
