Re: Evaluation of "Spirit of Aikido"

I liked it too, but it's been so many years since I've opened it up I don't think that I could really comment on it in much detail without re-reading it. One of Kisshomaru's struggles, of course, was how to present his father's teachings in a way that people could comprehend, and I do recall thinking that he'd done a fairly good job of it with this book.

For another side of the "administrator" image I'd recommend "Aikido Ichiro" - only in Japanese, but fairly readable nonetheless.


Care then to make any comments on how well my paraphrased points align with OSensei's assertions? I'm not trying to be snarky, just reaching for clarity.
