Re: "Miles Kessler -- A martial artist making a difference"

I have a lot of respect for this man, despite never having met him. The article details some of the things he is doing now, but I first heard of him through good works he did in the past, particularly the teaching he did in Myanmar (Burma).

I noticed the writer describes Miles sensei teaching a particular kind of ukemi ... Some people will be familiar with this clip from YouTube:

Of course, one of Maung Maung Thant sensei's teachers in Myanmar was Miles Kessler sensei.
