From the article: She now divides her time between tending her own garden in Dungeness, teaching aikido, knitting with local alpaca fiber, playing the tabla (Indian drum) and working as a home care aide at the Korean Women's Association. [...] "Dad asks what to tell people who ask what I do," she said. "I said tell them I'm a martial artist. That's what I always come back to. Aikido has led me to a life of service."
