Congratulations to Chicago Aikikai members who took their kyu tests last Friday, March 17.
Yvonne Matos (6th kyu)
Martha Lee Turner (5th kyu)
Good job and great work. And thanks to all those who helped them to prepare.
Aikido, the art of peace, offers a modern-day path to achieving inner balance. Rooted in the traditional disciplines of the Japanese samurai warriors - including jitsu (hand), ken (sword) and yari (spear) - Aikido is a contemporary martial art that can effectively repel any attack, but the goal is nonviolent conflict resolution.
