Conflict Resolution at the Native American Youth Leadership Conference 15 Nov 09

Aikido of Reno was invited to lead a Conflict Resolution seminar to a group of high school youth and teachers at the Native American Youth Leadership Conference at Circus Circus. Vince Sensei gave this youth group alternative ways to deal with conflict, anger and fear. Instead of using their fists or angry words, they could practice becoming calm through breathing, being aware of a defensible space around them and extending their open hands in a gesture of peace. Planting an alternative idea or response in these student's minds and having them physically experience how it works in a conflict situation was a meaningful exposure to a fundamental Aikido principle.
If any organization or business is interested in hosting a Conflict Resolution seminar, please contact the dojo at 337-8030.
