Jikishin Dojo Budo Kenshu – Study of the Martial Way is a unique account of the purpose, method and content of Budo study at Jikishin Dojo Auckland, New Zealand. It offers a very personal and open insight into the ideas, questions, and ever-changing thought processes that underpin practice at Jikishin Dojo, based on and partially combining the author’s research in Zen, Shiatsu, physiotherapy, Western philosophy, Aikido and many other martial arts. This research has inspired an ongoing review of Budo study, from its very fundaments to its diverse technical expressions. Consequently, Jikishin Dojo Budo Kenshu offers a renewed and fresh perspective on a wide array of topics pertinent to Aikido and Budo practice, including: – The conditioning of mind and body – The place of forms, techniques and gradings – The methods and concepts of teaching – The concept of Do, the Way – The workings of a dojo, and – the ethics of the Budo.
Not strictly Aikido, but outgrown from the Author’s personal Aikido training.
