AikiWeb News: Book Review: Liese Klein's "The Life-Giving Sword: Kazuo Chiba"
Posted 5/01/2020 4:26pm [from Jun Akiyama]

Here is a book review on Liese Klein’s book “The Life-Giving Sword: Kazuo Chiba’s Life in Aikido,” review written by Peter Goldsbury. Klein’s book, according to its back cover, “spans modern Japanese history and ranges across the world to tell the story of a man with a mission—to understand and transmit the modern martial art of Aikido.” From Goldsbury’s review: “The Life-Giving Sword: Kazuo Chiba's Life in Aikido presents a picture of a very remarkable man, written by one of his close students and, in my opinion, it steers a very satisfactory course between revealing the warts and blemishes, as well as the many virtues. Kazuo Chiba made an enormous contribution to aikido and this becomes very clear from Liese's biography.”
