Article: "Aikido: Mansfield Senior High graduate a hit in Japan"
Posted 10/20/2009 2:42pm [from Jun Akiyama]

Here's an article entitled "Aikido: Mansfield Senior High graduate a hit in Japan" which highlights Josh Ramsey, a Tomiki aikido practitioner, who "became the highest placing American in tanto randori aikido in more than 30 years, finishing in the top four" in the recent Eighth International Sport Aikido Tournament last month. From the article: "He picked up fans along the way as the non-Japanese in the crowd found a rooting interest to follow as 'The Football Player,' as he was dubbed in Kyoto, wound up in the semifinals. Because of his size compared to most of the competition and his dominating success, he was also dubbed 'Joshzilla.'"
