The International Aikido Federation has posted an article entitled "The Disability Working Group in Action" which highlights Lydia Zijdel (3rd dan, Netherland) and Molly Hale (4th dan, Aikido West), two Aikido teachers who use wheelchairs.

From the article: "For the first time, two wheelchair using Aikido teachers taught together in Aikido clinics in Europe. Lydia Zijdel, the Chairperson of the Disability Working Group of the IAF, from Netherland, and Molly Hale, member of the same working group, from USA, organized a tour where they taught together in Netherland. This event was organized in cooperation with Aikikai Netherland, under the aegis of IAF."
