From the Publisher:  This book is dedicated to the memory of the Great Master, Hombu Dojo Shihan, 8th Dan Aikido Aikikai. The process of creating the book began when the Master was still alive. Masatake Fujita Shihan devoted his life to Aikido. The world has thousands if not millions of followers and admirers of his work. He was a true legend, his memory and knowledge will never be forgotten.
Aikido suffers a serious loss that is difficult to admit. The Masters and Aikidoka from all over the world will follow Sensei’s teaching, study his unique training method carefully and will pass this invaluable knowledge to the next generation.
The Masters, the close friends perform the best Masatake Fujita Shihan’s techniques and the basic Aikido techniques paying a tribute of respect to the Great Master.

While given author credits, this book is more about Fujita Shihan than by him.
