Buy a Tatami Fundraiser

Chicago Aikido Club’s host, Tohkon Judo Academy, are holding a fundraising campaign to purchase new tatami mats for the dojo.  The current mats are over 18 years old and need to be replaced with 105 new ones.  They are also hoping to install wall safety mats and make improvements to the locker rooms.  The goal of the Buy a Tatami fundraiser is $20,000.  Any donation is welcome.  Donations of $100 or more will receive an engraved “Buy a Tatami Plaque” that will be prominently displayed at the dojo.
