About my Fundraiser

What is Aikido Kenkyukai Santa Barbara:

Aikido Kenkyukai Santa Barbara is a non-profit organization sponsoring many youngsters in the surrounding area who would not otherwise be able to afford Aikido training and mentoring. This is a character-forming, life-affirming opportunity, that benefits the entire community and beyond.

Why I wanted to get involved:

I believe that Aikido Kenkyukai Santa Barbara will turn into something great in the near future and I just wanted to be a part of that. Aikido isn’t something you hear everyday and it is a very unique style of Japanese Martial arts that is performed by blending with the motion of the attacker and redirecting the force of the attack rather than opposing it head-on. I want to be part of the new Dojo, I want to be part of the community, and I want to broaden my horizons.
