Aikido is a Japanese martial art that, even though it is based on the fighting techniques of the Samurai in feudal Japan, has developed into a peaceful, non-fighting art.
Like meditation, Aikido is a way of life meant for people who want peace of mind and peace in the world.
This book describes in detail how Aikido techniques can work to stop fighting instead of carrying on conflicts. It gives a thorough guide to the foundations of the art and suggestions of how to apply these ideas in daily life.
Born in 1951 in Kagoshima, Japan, the author Kenjirō Yoshigasaki Sensei is teaching Ki and Aikidō in Europe since 1977, he is now president of the «Ki no Kenkyukai Internationale».
