Lesa Setters has been the director of AOM’s Young People’s Aikido program since 2008. An educator for over 20 years, she has been a teacher at the Missoula Community School since 2006. Lesa became a student of Aikido at Aikido of Missoula in 2002, drawn to the peaceful ethic of Aikido and to the challenge of learning the techniques. She was promoted to nidan in 2013. She says of her work with YPA, “I find that Aikido training helps children in many ways. Young people learn to center themselves and feel grounded in their bodies. They learn to relax and move in ways that prevent injury. Most importantly, they can discover their natural power, a positive power, in the noncompetitive atmosphere of the dojo.”
