Hello Blue Heron Aikidoka,
Big News. During the third week of April 2007 Middlebury College will
be hosting a Symposium entitled, “Pursuing Knowledge Without
Boundaries: The Liberal Arts and the Martial Art of Aikido.”

Kimberly Richardson,5th dan, Chief Instructor of Two Cranes Aikido in
Seattle will be our featured speakers and teachers.

There will be two good talks at Middlebury College by Don Levine on
Wednesday and Kimberly Richardson on Thursday. Both will be at
4:30-5:45pm in Dana Auditorium and open to the general public. I urge
you to try and make both.
The training on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be open to Blue
Heron Aikido members and Middlebury College students, faculty and
staff only. The Saturday session will be open to anyone in the state.
Keeping everything in the dojo clean and organized for this week will
take extra effort from all of us.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!! There will be an extra fee for the Saturday
training, exact cost TBA.
