Article: "Aikido female master of disabled kids"
Posted 3/25/2011 10:50am [from Jun Akiyama]

This article entitled "Aikido female master of disabled kids" highlights 65-year old Nguyen Thi Thanh Loan in Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) who teaches aikido to blind, hearing-impaired, and Downs Syndrome children. From the article: "Ha Thanh, 21, a Downs Syndrome patient, can play guitar, sing very well and has a passion for Aikido. Thanh's mother said that since she joined the Aikido class, she has become very agile, jolly and says hello and goodbye to her mother whenever she leaves or arrives home. "She told me that she was very happy to go to the Aikido class because she has many friends there. Whenever she has good food, she brings it to the class to share with classmates," her mother said."
