Along the Way

This collection of writings on training in Aikido, a traditional mind-body art, comes from the perspective of two instructors, Michelle L. Tate and Lisa R. Tomoleoni, who see themselves as lifelong students of the art. Presented alternatively in pithy prose and delightful verse interspersed with excellent photographs, this book takes the reader through the authors’ journey of life lessons gained through sustained training. We get an insider’s view of training at the Aikido Hombu Dojo and in Iaido from Tomoleoni Sensei and glimpses of the landscape shaped by Aikido in Tate Sensei’s mind. What shines through the narration is their sense of gratitude for the art and their teachers. Together these two viewpoints combine to create a book that is hoped to be inspirational, and to share the growth, challenge, joy and fulfillment that this particular form of training has brought them, and continues to bring to their lives.
