Book/Video: "The Way to Union with Ki" by Koichi Tohei sensei
Posted 3/09/2001 11:45am [from Jun Akiyama]
I just received news that Koichi Tohei sensei will be publishing a new book in October, 2001, entitled "The Way to Union with Ki." Here's the information from Ki Society Headquarters. "We will publish the English version of Koichi Tohei Sensei's book which is titled "The Way
to Union with KI (Ki ni Gassuru no Michi)" on October, 2001. This book is a commemorative
publication of Tohei Sensei's 80 years old birthday. All Ki-Aikido techniques are described in
this book. And Tohei Sensei will sign an autograph each copy. And this book will be the last
book of KI-Aikido technique written by Tohei Sensel. We sell this book by subscription only
and this book is a limited edition of 300 copies. Special price of the book is 18,000 yen
(Shipping is not included). After March 15, 2001 price will be back to regular price which is
20,000 yen per copy. Because we publish only 300 copies and we need to translate and pay
tax, the price of a copy became expensive. I am sorry to cost you a great deal, but I hope you
will understand the situation and please use the book forever.
To subscribe for the book, please fill out enclosed subscription form and list, then send
them to H.Q. along with payment. The deadline of the subscription form will be March 15,
2001. If you send money by a bank draft in yen, you will need to add 5,000 yen per check as
bank handling fee. (please see another enclosed information) Therefore, I will suggest you to
send money to our bank account directly because bank handling fee for transferring money to
our bank account is 2,500 yen. Here is our bank account number:
Zaidan-hojin KI no Kenkyukai, Kaicho Koichi Tohei.
Dai-ichi Kangyo Bank, Iidabashi Branch, Futsu 2027900.
We will deliver Tohei Sensei's book to you by end of November at the latest. If you have any
questions, please feel free to ask our overseas Division staff, Maki Sato. We hope you will
place an order. Thank you very much." [Note March 12, 2001: I have just received word that you must have the signature of a Ki Society dojocho in order to order this book... People interested may want to contact their local Ki Society dojo.]
