In keeping with the spirit of another thread; Which MA would you say is best for one with a physical disability? I have limited mobility and am in a wheelchair. I have found, for me, that the Aikido I was taught in the military works fairly well. I am able to employ joint locks if someone were to grab me, and I can use my chair as a weapon for someone trying to strike. I use my Aikido in that I can see where a person's force is going and, using my chair, I just help him along. Also by controlling my breathing I control my fear and keep my mind alert to problems. Mind you, I've never been attacked on the "street" so the real world application is up in the air. But, I do what I can in training and hopefully I'll never have to find out. Cheers!
