I am attempting to raise money for a month long trip to practice Aikido at New York Aikikia dojo. I have been able to visit for a few days at a time on a couple of different occasions,  but would like the opportunity to practice for a few weeks to gain a new perspective and added training for the art I love. I have been practicing Aikido for just over four years and am about to test for 1st kyu, the rank before shodan,  or black belt. The added training would help me prepare for that test and help clear my mind. I would be staying at a local hostel  in a dorm type setting and training at a minimum of three to four classes a day. The art of Aikido, for those who don't know has helped me to change my life. I quit drinking,  lost 50lbs and helped me to create goals in life. It is a martial art of peace and that of self defense. With this trip I hope to gain valuable knowledge and practice in order to better myself and my life.
