Thanks to the renowned Carbondale Mountain Fair for inviting Roaring Fork Aikikai to provide an aikido demonstration, and to all who participated and showed support. We started off with members of our little kids' program rolling and leaping across the mat, dodging foam swords and demonstrating blending techniques and the corner drop throw. A representative of the big kids' program showed everyone that technique and focus can overcome big size differences. Mike Jones Sensei and C-pher Bair demonstrated weapons and weapons takeaways, and Mike, C-pher and Ann O'Brien demonstrated jiyu waza, or freestyle techniques from various attacks.
See you next year Carbondale Mountain Fair!
