Hi again! Does anybody know where one can find Aikido and the Chinese Martial Arts vol.3.? The first two are co-authored by Tetsutaka Sugawara but I can't find vol.3 anywhere. Was it ever published? (Vol.2 says "vol.2 of 3") Thanks! :)

It's probably not out yet, I had "Vol 1 of 3" for years before Volume 2 was ever released.

I can confirm that there is no "Volume 3". When last I checked, there were no immediate plans to produce it.

Thanks Clark, for the information about the non-existent volume three. That means it joins all the other non-existent volumes of whatever out there. There are quite a few I'm told. It is the example of an agenda that doesn't quite come about.

True, Mark, but I can understand it. Writing and formatting a book, and then actually getting to print, takes an enormous amount of time and resources. Hard to justify it if there's no return. I just talked with a Sensei in Australia who put out a very good book last year. It was marketed online worldwide by the publisher, by Budovideos, by Amazon and others, and to date has sold 37 copies!!! How can anyone justify a project as time consuming as this when nobody buys it? :(
