Deshimaru

Regarding the link between Zen and aikido (and other budo), I just have to mention the prominent Zen monk Taisen Deshimaru, and his book The Zen Way to Martial Arts:

He was a very impressive and fascinating man. I know a handful of great anecdotes about him, but suffice to say that he's worth studying.
