Aikido neutralises aggression and renders attackers harmless. By controlling body position and harmonising their vital physical and mental powers, anyone - regardless of size, strength or weight - can fend off attacks using this sophisticated martial art. This classic text - now available for the first time in paperback- reveals the secrets which enable the stunning control practised in Aikido and is highly recommended as one of the finest books on martial arts available.
"If you are a student of Aikido, this book should definitely be in your library. If you're not a student of Aikido, this book can still be a useful way to familiarize yourself with the art on a theoretical level. It's also an interesting resource for anyone who wants to do some serious thinking about their martial art. Anyone who has ambitions to write a book on their own martial art should read this one; this is how an art should be presented."--"Examiner.com"
