Moriteru Ueshiba is the grandson of Morihei Ueeshiba, the Japanese master who developed Aikido, one of the most renowned martial arts in the world. Moriteru Ueshiba is Aikido Doshu and chairman of the International Aikido Federation.
The most important and fundamental element in Aikido is proper movement based on the principle of circular motion where the center remains stable (as in a spinning top). This new volume has explicitly detailed explanations of the movements accompanied by hundreds of clearly illustrated photos.
In Aikido, self-defense is equated with presence of mind, and the practice of the art is a path to harmony based on the integration of the mind and the body. It is not a competitive sport.
This latest publication by Moriteru Ueshiba will be valuable not only for the novice but for the advanced practitioner as well.
I have just begun in Aikido classes and this book helps to refresh between sessions.
The descriptions and pictures are much more detailed than the Best Aikido books.
