    When I first started investigating Aikido, I really had no idea what to expect. I knew it was intended to use an attacker's energy as a defense, but that was about it.

    I recently saw a comment in an interview with another student of O Sensei: (paraphrased) "In later years, O sensei would just give these long lectures that no one understood" Well, Saotome Sensei certainly applied himself to understandingsomething ; and here he tries to pass on what he learned.

    Its teachings were more on the aspects, the connections with nature, less in the technical applications but all in all, great book!

    This is a good book about some of the basic beliefs and values often associated with the martial arts style of aikido. The author provides some interesting perspectives and ideas that extend past the study of aikido. Note that this book is not an instructional manual about the practice of aikido nor is this a book about fighting.

    "You are the wind, the sun, a mountain, and, exactly, you are art." - "If you are weak, you have no choice." - Worth a (re)read if you practice Aikido.
