Detailed item info

The Japanese use of the word ki , meaning a type of inner energy - the force within - is explored here by the 17th descendent of the Tougun-ryo school of fencing and member of a distinguished Samurai family. He examines the nature and practice of ki in martial arts, from historical records, and through scientific examination. He also looks at the connection between ki and Shinto (Japan's own religion) and Aikido.

Kaku is the master of the Togun-ryu school of kenjutsu. This book looks at ki in the modern world, and looks at the life and legacy of Morihei Ueshiba, Nakamura Tempu, and others.

Highly recommended not only for aikido and kenjutsu practitioners, as well as people interested in other Japanese martial arts and Japanese culture in general.
