This article entitled "Aikido for the disabled sows the seeds of humanity" which introduces us to the Vietnamese couple Nguyen Thi Thanh Loan and Dang Van Phat who runs an association in Ho Chi Minh City that teaches aikido to disabled people. From the article: "Loan is head of the Aikido department of the HCMC Association for Disabled Martial Arts and also the second Vietnamese woman to hold an international Shodan title.
