Re: Disabled students

On my first visit to Alamogordo New Mexico 1992, I taught at a school there for the Blind...The main figure at the school for sport was Winford Haynes, he represented the USA in the Olympic Paraplegic Games for both Judo and athletics. I would watch him with his training partner in the sprints. Just amazing.
I often used him as my uke, his Aikido was very good..
