Another in the series of articles by Paul Rest in the San Francisco Bay Area, here is an article entitled "Sonja Sutherland - A Martial Artist Making a Difference" (http://www.examiner.com/martial-arts-in-san-francisco/sonja-sutherland-a-martial-artist-making-a-difference).

From the article: "One day while I was in my Feldenkrais training, I watched my trainer bring a client effortlessly from sitting to standing with only his hands, holding gently around the base of the person's neck. How he organized his own movement and guided his client so effortlessly to standing mesmerized me. 'How did you do that?' 'Fundamental movement principles. Moshe Feldenkrais was a martial artist. Take Tai Chi or train Aikido,' was his response." So Sonja began her Aikido training and has continued ever since.
