Jerald is a 50 year old man who has adult on set Cerebral palsy. He has been studying Aikido now for 4 years. This is his 4th kyu test done in front of Sugano Sensei. Though he doesn't have full control of his motor skills, anyone who studies Aikido can recognize the techniques he is trying to do. It is so inspirational to to see his determination to accomplish this in spite of obstacles most of us will never be able to relate to. Jeralds' Aikido may not be a martial art but it is no less impressive. I hope I can show half as much dedication in my studies. PS: It might be of interest to some other viewers who are disabled(?) that Sugano Sensei lost a foot to diabetes a couple of years ago and is still traveling the world giving seminars in Aikido as well as teaching in the NY Aikikai.
