Re: teaching the blind

Lest we forget, anyone can learn Aikido. So there is no reason at all why a blind person cannot.

The thread was on advice, helpful advice. Much was forthcoming. Excellent.

Remembering it's a martial art should be taken on board by the 'naysayers' for the basic attitude and discipline of a martial art is YOU CAN.

Disability in my opinion is a lie, not the truth. It's merely impaired ability. You either have the discipline and responsibility to help or you find excuses why it could be 'so dangerous' or ' not for them' .All in their best interest of course. (I don't think!)
