I have the Japanese version. Its quite interesting. I have only read the first few chapters. He goes on about his introduction to aikido and comparing it to judo, karate and boxing. He also talks about how he used to go with his friends to rough areas of Tokyo in order to test their aikido against gansters.
I haven't seen the English version yet.
Hey there Darin!
Yes, I think I'll get the book - the darn web site doesn't work right now though!
Check out this article by Michiharu Mori, 6th dan in Yoshinkan Aikido (Australia). He was the last Uchi deshi of Kancho Shioda (for 10 years) and he talks about his experiences. Yikes! I'm afraid of Shioda!
