Spotlight on a fight with Parkinson's disease

Here's an article entitled "Spotlight on a fight with Parkinson's disease" which highlights Ken Marvin's experiences with Parkinson's disease and aikido. "Aikido is oriented in self-defense, but it is different from other martial arts. Rather than kicks and punches, aikido uses throws - and the knowledge that the joints are the weakest point of the body - to ward off an attack. In a similar fashion, Ken was able to ward off the punch of Parkinson's by rolling with it."
