display_description Aikido is the "Art of Peace", a discipline that emphasizes harmony and the peaceful resolution of conflict, practiced by over a hundred thousand Westerners. Far more than a self-defense technique, Aikido is a physical and spiritual discipline that aims at unifying the body and spirit with the natural forces of the universe, fostering compassion, wisdom, and fearlessness. This book serves as an accessible introduction to the basic principles and practices of this popular martial art. The topics covered include the biography of the Founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969) - perhaps history's greatest warrior - highlighting the key events that led to the development of Aikido; the fundamental training methods and techniques, illustrated by dozens of photographs; the philosophical and spiritual dimensions; the distinctive styles of the principal schools; a glossary of words commonly encountered; and suggestions for further reading.
