Ai symbol Physically handicapped Aikidoists?

Aiki Community,

Could someone please tell me about any physically handicapped aikidoists they know of? I am especially curious to learn how the dojo and instructor accommodated their special needs. Does anyone know of a person who began aikido with a physical handicap?

I understand that there is at least one woman with dan ranking who is in a wheelchair (in the photos I've seen). Did the wheelchair come before or after she started aikido?

To reiterate, I am especially curious to learn how the dojo and instructor accommodated these special needs.

Travel In Harmony,
CJ
