Thank you Ellis for mentioning my book Journey to the Heart of Aikido
, recently released. I am so glad that the book is finally out (after over ten years of working on it!) and that people are reading it. I hope it will make a contribution to Aikido history and encourage people to commit themselves to Aikido practice.
If anyone is interested in more information about the book, or the October book launch events in Santa Cruz and San Francisco, please check out www.journeytoaikido.com
I love the "It Had to be Felt" personal accounts and have read every one. Thank you Ellis for setting up this format for sharing people's first-hand experiences and memories!
