Article: "Durango sees some Japanese flair"
Posted 8/26/2008 3:45pm [from Jun Akiyama]

This article entitled "Durango sees some Japanese flair" focuses on a summer festival held in Durango, CO to benefit the Aikido Life Program in the Durango School District 9-R schools. From the article: "Students from third grade through high school can take an Aikido program as a physical-education elective, and more than 250 kids have taken advantage of the program in its 1.5 year lifespan. [...] "It has a lot to offer as far as an art, and it really helps you see things differently," said Cady, who said that before the Aikido Life Program he was a violent and troubled young man. "You lose your violent feelings, and I learned different ways to get through situations that I couldn't before. It's definitely been a positive change for me," he said."
