What is Aikido?
"What Is Aikido" is essentially a shortened form of Tohei Sensei's earlier book "Aikido: The Arts of Self Defense." Most of the chapters are on the "Arts" (waza) of Aikido. Other chapters include: What is Aikido?, Principles of Ki, The One Point, Professor Morihei Ueshiba, and About the Author. The publisher has bound the book in an attractive woven fiber binding. A softcover edition (see yellow cover art) was produced. Although some accounts state that the first softcover edition was marketed beginning in 1967, publishers' data for many copies do not support this, showing an earlier publication date of 1962.
