    Default Youtube videos of Aikido in American Samoa

    Aloha, my friend Ken in Hawaii suggested i post this here, so I registered to post.....my wife and i started an Aikido Yuishinkai dojo in American Samoa this past January. Some of our training is posted on Youtube under her name"aletanapoleone" or can be found by searching for "aikido in American Samoa". Hope you enjoy!

    Thank you for your welcome Cady; we have had up to 22 at one time training, and as few as one show up. Most of our students are still in school, so attendance varies depending on their academic workload and parent attitudes toward extracurricular activities. I am aware of some aikido in independent Samoa, but we are the first as far as we can tell in American Samoa, so we expect that it will take a while to develop a committed cadre. The 2 long videos show us with 22 on the mat; this was before we doubled our mat space, and it was pretty crowded then......now we have more space and less people (go figure). Aloha, Steve
