I'm trying to track down reliable information regarding Tom Read's Aikibojitsu for an article on staff work I'm writing. Since aikibojitsu.com seems to be defunct, does anyone know of other sources of info regarding Aikibojitsu? So far my digging has turned up a lot of anecdotal information, but nothing concrete, and nothing from Read Sensei himself.

I wanted to exhaust resources in print (paper or electronic) before I try to bother Read Sensei himself, as my discussion of Aikibojitsu itself will form a relatively minor part of the article.

Can anyone throw me a bone? Articles? Interviews? Video?

Thanks in advance.

Aikibojutsu is entirely Tom Read's creation so almost all the information about it lies exclusively between his ears, and the ears of those who have studied it with him.

Jun, that's an absolutely tremendous help - thank you SO much! I think I'll be able to get at least a start on it that way.

Thanks!!
