Philosophy of Aikido, The
"Aikido has been called the most philosophical of martial arts..." says the author, and in this book he details what he considers to be the "Essential Principles" on which Aikido is based, in his first chapter. Other chapters include his discussion of how Aikido is related to Nature and Health, to Eastern and Western philosophies, to Art, and to the Global Society. The second half of the book discusses Aikido Practice, but it is an examination not of technique, but of the ideas and philosophies that govern and inform practice. This latter half contains many pictures. The book has a short, but highly complimentary Forward by Doshu Moriteru Ueshiba.
