"The history of Japan's martial traditions is replete with many outstanding individuals, but few ever attained the legendary status of Morihei Ueshiba. Throughout his life he mastered an array of martial arts and techniques, including jujutsu and kendo, and endlessly devoted himself to the philosophies of Japan's martial schools. He also had a deep knowledge of the practice of Shinto. Refining these traditions into a wholly new system, he founded Aikido - the way of harmony. Going far beyond simple methods of attack or self-defense, Aikido seeks to dispel any aggression through harmony, thus ultimately promoting peace. Through the unique aspect of both preserving the heritage of the classical fighting arts and applying them within the context of contemporary society, Aikido has quickly become one of the most respected martial arts in the world." "In this biography, the Founder's son and second Aikido Doshu Kisshomaru Ueshiba details the life of this remarkable man, from his early years as a youth in the turbulent Meiji Era to his death in 1969. Incorporating a wealth of first-hand accounts and anecdotes with historical documents, the author weaves a fascinating narrative of the Founder's life, and with great fondness tells of his own memories of the man who would come to be known as O Sensei - great teacher." "Revealing much of the character and temperament of O Sensei, the author paints a picture of a man of formidable commitment and spirituality, in both his practice of Aikido and his message of peace. Indeed, his dedication to his art was so resolute that through his techniques he was able to attain kami-waza; an ability that transcends the human and reaches the divine. This book will be invaluable to any reader with an interest in the life of Morihei Ueshiba. It will also be of interest to those who wish to learn something of the human character behind the legend that was Aikido's Founder."--BOOK JACKET

Der Name Aikido setzt sich zusammen aus Ai (Harmonie, Freundschaft), Ki (Lebenskraft, Energie, Geist) und Do (der Weg). Ziel des Aikido ist es, Körper und Geist in Übereinstimmung mit den Gesetzen der Natur und in Harmonie zueinander zu bringen. Im Buch werden Grundzüge, philosophische Wurzeln, Bedeutung des Ki (s. auch Tohei "Ki im täglichen Leben" in dieser Nr.), Prinzipien, Techniken, Übungen und Training des weltweit verbreiteten Aikidos beschrieben, das von allen Altersgruppen unabhängig vom Geschlecht betrieben werden kann.
