A devastating earthquake in Lombok happened 5th August 2018 affected thousands of lives and families. Lots of villages were fully down to basements, houses, schools, hospitals were ruined. Thousands of families lost their nearest in a struggle with nature, the survivors spirits and beliefs got injured...
A long way of recovery in Lombok is still going on slowly - while buildings can be build back, people spirits cant be raised back so easily.
Looking through a sad landscape left after nature's roar, our team felt a necessity to SUPPORT LOCAL COMMUNITY THROUGH SPORTS.
Through teaching people main philosophies of Aikido we want to bring NEW HOPES to those who suffered, to make them FEARLESS AND STRONG to bare difficulties that community is facing in recovery times.
At the moment our team have a place ready to accommodate first practitioners and experienced Sensei cant wait to share the knowledge.
We are just one issue away from opening our doors to public!
Our Dojo NEEDS SUPPORT TO BUY MORE MATS for preventing injures during education. The cost of tick Aikido mats inclusive shipment to Lombok is $1000 and this sum is hard to get for us.
We are reaching out for you to take part in not just supporting sports but contributing for community spirit of earthquake victims.
Children deserve a chance to fight against their fears, adults have to find new hopes and doubt in tomorrow - and you can help with it!
Our target is to get funded $1000 so we can start classes immediately once mats arrive.
Our long-term goal is to open a separate big Dojo complex with daily classes, able to host Aikido Seminars with worldwide participants.
Looking back you might get a reasonable question why we founding for building Aikido Dojo, once its seems to be more logic to help in building houses and other institutions.
Unfortunately the sector of sport, physical and emotional support is always been forgotten in privilege for first-need aids. But there will be no progress if human's spirit is down.
Aikido is a way of a warrior and this way begins from your head, your heart and your soul.
You can join this Budo (warrior) way by contributing for our needs!
We are excited to ask you join a way of recovery and rebuilding of wonderful Lombok Island!
Our true DOJO is our lLIFE itself. And, Aikido designed to bring emotional and physical realization and put it to good use.
We are asking for your support and to help spread the word! Please team up with us!
