Dojo News: Dojo Flood - Small Disasater Relief (Aikido Heiwa, Lynwood, WA)
Posted 4/12/2011 4:15pm [from Will Holloway]

Hello Aikido Friends; Aikido Heiwa, in Lynnwood, Washington, one of the Aikido Schools of Ueshiba dojos, has recently suffered a sewer backup which damaged walls, flooring and many of the mats. Insurance only has covered about a third of the rebuilding and renovations after our small disaster. At a time when so many are scrambling to help our friends in Japan for their REAL damages, it is hard to ask for assistance back here at home. But, we have started doing some fund raising, as the expenses of rebuilding have mounted beyond our dojo savings, so every little bit could help. We will be hosting some events later this spring after a grand re-opening, but for now are looking for assistance. George Ledyard Sensei has set up a fund at: http://www.eventsbot.com/events/eb252815538 and we also have a Paypal account available at: info@aikidoheiwa.com Please feel free to come practice sword cuts with a paintbrush if you are in the area, or join us to train and visit if you are in town after we re-open. We have been closed for over three weeks since the disaster. My gratitude and love to all, Will Holloway Aikido Heiwa www.aikidoheiwa.com
