Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere

This is a basic e-book, which appears to have “borrowed” its title from the Westbrook & Ratti classic already familiar to all Aikido bibliophiles.  This is a 22-page boilerplate intro, whose content is possibly harvested from public-domain sources, and shares nothing but the title with the original 1969 work bearing the same title.  Caveat emptor…

Aikido’s focus is on the practices that do not hurt people or take their lives, which makes it different from other aggressive martial art forms. Skills and actions which a person trained in the art of Aikido are mainly created to deflect opponent’s concentration and disable it. Many people favor this martial art because of its peaceful and harmonious ways unlike aggression and conflict found in other disciplines. The man that introduced and developed this art was called Morehei Ueshiba. He thought that the art of harmony was to direct the anger and make it result in no harm. What also separates Aikido from other martial arts is the fact that Aikido exploit the hands as a weapon and the followers of Aikido don’t use weapons.

Aikido is usually practiced in a Dojo, where learners of this discipline can learn in relation with variations that come from time to time. This is a part of the style that all Aikido followers are trying to attain. Aikido’s first purpose is to practice and learn through about good values as well as mysticism. Although it may seem odd, Aikido is the way to have a peaceful mind.

This book is mainly centered on Aikido in general, so that everyone has a very clear idea what Aikido is, and how it will benefit you and your lifestyle.

Masatake Fujita Shihan’s 8 Powerful Techniques

Kindle Cover
Kindle Cover

From the Author:  Masatake Fujita Shihan was famous for his vigorous performing of the techniques. His teaching style is commonly known as “Fujita Sensei’s theory of motion (tai sabaki)“. In this theory, three elements are emphasized: posture, dodge and technical application. He introduced the progressive training method where first it is taught the proper posture and then the needed appropriate dodge for a favorable position which is the key to a successful performing of a technique.
I believe that Masatake Fujita Sensei’s teaching, spiritual thinking will be passed on and acquainted with more people.
