Description

"The purpose of Aikido is to remind us that we are always in the state of grace." If anyone embodied that state of grace, it was Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969) perhaps the greatest martial artist who ever lived. But who was the man who created the Art of Peace? What were the principles - always more spiritual than physical - that this "warrior for peace" espoused? And how did the Founder's own movements embody the high standards he set himself and others? Training with the Master addresses all these questions, centering around 157 photographs of unrivaled quality, shot when O-Sensei was eighty-four years old and at the peak of his career as a teacher, martial artist, and spiritual seeker. Framing the photographs are a biography of the Founder by John Stevens and a compilation of quotations from Morihei's collected talks, reported sayings, poems, and calligraphy.
