Article: "Martial arts master teaches students to avoid combat"
Posted 4/14/2011 2:51pm [from Jun Akiyama]

This article entitled "Martial arts master teaches students to avoid combat" introduces us to Cecelia Ricciotti (7th dan, Kokikai aikido) of Philadephia Aikido, who has been teaching at the Mt Airy Learning Tree on and off for 20 years. From the article: But at the aikido studio, everyone laughed at her and her rambunctious little boy. "It's the art I was looking for," said Ricciotti. "I never found a reason to quit." In 1978 Ricciotti was good enough for her teacher to ask her to help teach, and she's been doing it ever since.
