Here's a short article entitled "The Aiki Way"
featuring Richard Strozzi-Heckler's foray into the martial arts.
From the article: "The moment I saw them practicing [judo] I was spellbound and I never once thought about how I could use it to protect myself or beat someone up. It seemed like poetry to me. Wearing thick, white cotton pants and jackets tied by a black belt at their waists they effortlessly and confidently threw each other over their hips, like water flowing over a cliff, smiling and laughing and thoroughly enjoying what they were doing."
