SYAA Aloha Breakfast

On April 18, 2015, the Sansei Yonsei Athletic Association, a youth basketball organization that plays at Ravenswood Fellowship United Methodist Church (where we also practice), held a Hawaiian breakfast fundraiser to raise money for a new gym floor and hoops. Our entire dojo came out to support. Thanks everyone!

We also ran into Dwight Sora, manager of Chicago Aikido Club, with his family. Dwight’s father came to Chicago from Hawaii, so he was glad to get a taste of “home!”
