I'd be legitimately interested in how to teach aikido to the disabled. As it happens, the bus route which takes me to class, goes past a school for the blind, and has a lot of blind passengers, some of whom I chat with. I've often wondered if, one day, one of them will walk into the dojo, and take an interest in joining us......
It would be great if you could set something like this up. I know that a few groups ( dojo or teachers working together from different dojo) in the Netherlands, in Belgium and in Germany have succesfully given classes to visually disabled.
