Aikido: Yurusu Budo

Book Summary:

This book is the lone volume written by Nishio Sensei himself. After resisting all efforts to persuade him to write a book, Nishio Sensei reconsidered after the passing of Yamaguchi Sensei and Saito Sensei. This is intended to be his legacy work, yet meant in the humblest of ways. Yurusu Budo means "budo of acceptance." In this book, Nishio Sensei attempts to explain the changing meaning of budo, from purely contentious to benevolent and giving, as was the evolution of O'Sensei's design of Aikido. There is much technical content, and the volume is well illustrated.
