Here is a unique approach to the teachings of the Founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, as interpreted by his direct student of fifteen years. Mitsugi Saotome examines the spiritual philosophy of the Founder, the warrior ideals of feudal Japan as the basis of his martial arts philosophy, and the scientific principles underlying the philosophy of Aikido technique. The author shows that the physical movement of Aikido is the embodiment of principles of the spirit. Negative force is not countered with aggression but is controlled and redirected through the power and balance of spiral movement. This is the shape of Aikido and the dynamic shape at the foundation of all energies of existence. Aikido movement can only be understood from its roots in universal law and the processes of nature. The sincere practice and study of Aikido deepens our appreciation for the perfection of nature's balance and brings us back into harmony with our environment, other people, and ourselves. Abundantly illustrated with the author's drawings, diagrams, and calligraphies, as well as photographs demonstrating Aikido techniques, the book also offers a history of Aikido, personal anecdotes about the Founder, and translations of several of his lectures.

This book seems very different to me reading it again 15 years later. It absolutely gets better the more you experience. I own this in print and bought another copy for reading on my iPad. Tremendous depth to this text and it has so many layers!

This book was amazing, but it's probably not the best choice for someone just beginning to study these spiritual traditions. If you feel up to the challenge, however, the beauty of this work is exquisite. Some of the expressions left me in tears, and I felt swept along with deeper insight into the flow of the universe. This book is a spiritual gem. Read it if you feel drawn and ready for some spiritual forging.

The most important book about Martial Arts ever written in the US. Saotome Shihan is a national treasure.
My husband has been a student of Aikido for 21 years. He studies under Carmen Pelusi Shihan of Eight Winds Aikido Society. He loves anything Aikido.
