Article: "John Sukumar Ratnam and his journey in Aikido"
Posted 7/26/2010 10:01am [from Jun Akiyama]

This article entitled "John Sukumar Ratnam and his journey in Aikido" introduces us to John Sukumar Ratnam who started studying aikido in the mid 1980's in Sri Lanka. Now, he is a 4th dan teaching at the Dubai Aikido Club. From the article: "It was a difficult time for me in Japan. I had very little money to pay my Hombu Dojo tuition fees for my board and lodging in Japan. But when I was almost down and out it was thanks to magic that I managed to survive. I diligently applied myself to the study of Aikido by paying my fees with what I earned as a street magician there."
