Article: "A very special martial arts class" Article
Posted 9/13/2010 9:19am [from Jun Akiyama]

Here's an article entitled "A very special martial arts class" which highlights Nguyen Thi Kim Loan in Vietnam who teaches aikido in Ho Chi Minh City to students who are all blind or mentally impaired. From the article: "This class aims to help disabled people to be okay after they fall," Loan explains. In addition to giving oral instructions, she teaches blind disciples by having them touch her as she makes the martial arts moves and throws. "Since I attend this class, I have become more agile. Even though I can’t see, my feelings about things seem to be clearer," said Quyen.
