Aikido Kenkyukai USA 2018 Campaign
NEWS! Fall Seminar & Fundraiser: Oct 12-14
Our Fall Seminar with senseis Chetan Prakash and Lia Suzuki will benefit the daughter of Lee Lavi Ramirez Sensei.
The 16-year-old daughter of our friend Lee Lavi Ramirez Sensei was recently diagnosed with bone cancer. Lavi Ramirez Sensei has been a good friend to our dojo and was the first to join our Los Angeles Friendship Class Series, with no hesitation.
We would like to support her at this difficult time so all net proceeds from the seminar will go to support this cause.

Aikido Kenkyukai International, USA ("AKI USA") is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Every year we work to raise money so we can continue our important work in the community. This work includes, but is not limited to:
- Providing scholarships to those in need. With your help, we have provided nearly $30,000 worth of scholarships! Recipients include low-income youth, military veterans with PTSD, and other underserved populations.
- Offering Aikido seminars with world renowned instructors. Each year we host at least two seminars, attracting practitioners of all skill levels from around the globe. Scholarships are also available to those in need for these seminars.
- Launching our "Deshi Program" (Immersion Program). Candidates from around the globe have begun applying for our Deshi Program. We need to provide a dedicated training space for these young practitioners, thereby supporting the future of Aikido.
- Creating new relationships with overseas dojo, thus enriching the experiences of our young members. Last year one of our 17-year-old members accompanied me on my European Tour, co-teaching youth classes there and participating fully (most times being my main "uke") in adults classes.
Currently, our most pressing need is more tatami for our Los Angeles dojo!
Any amount helps! Please give what you can!
