This definitive, profusely illustrated manual covers the very important elements of the philosophy and practice of Aikido, the Japanese martial art that has been embraced by up to date psychology and plenty of Western bodywork therapies.
Useful to the beginner and experienced practitioner alike, the book details the traditional methods and techniques of Shirata Rinjiro, of whom John Stevens is a principal student. Noted for the precise execution of quite a lot of techniques and an emphasis on Aikido as a religious path, Shirata Sensei’s teachings exemplify the way in which of the warrior: superior technical prowess combined with profound spiritual insight.
In addition to photographs and descriptions of all of the necessary Aikido techniques, Stevens recounts interesting and energetic anecdotes about the history of Aikido and its founder, Ueshiba Morihei, who developed it from a martial art into a religious discipline. A biography of Shirata Sensei, complete with his reflections on sixty years of Aikido practice, could also be included.
