Re: Essential reading for internal skills (aiki) training

My first aikido teacher told me there were no good books on aikido and he gave me Zen in the Art of Archery by Eugen Herrigel and I still have it. I really liked it (and by chance just a couple of days ago I happened to mention it to someone on here). This is the Wikipedia link.

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
