Please help us raise money for the Shade Tree Clinic.

Again this year, our holiday charitable event will be to raise money for the Shade Tree Clinic.  The Shade Tree Clinic is a free medical clinic run by Vanderbilt Medical Students, which serves many of our fellow Nashville residents of limited financial means.  For more information about the services the clinic provides, please check out their website at  You can give your donation to Mary Sensei, Marta, or leave a check in the mailbox.  Please make checks out to Nashville Aikikai and indicate “Shade Tree Clinic” on the memo line.  Last year we raised $498.  Let’s exceed that goal this year!


The RW is a little brain-dead.  A very belated and hearty congratulations to J. Nord of Aikido of North Alabama for promotion to Shodan and Mark Clark of Cookeville Aikido for promotion to Nidan at our recent seminar with Tres Hofmeister Shihan.  Both had excellent tests.
