This is an auction for AIKIDO AND THE DYNAMIC SPHERE: AN ILLUSTRATED INTRODUCTION by A. Westbrook and O. Ratti.

Illustrated by O. Ratti.

[This is one of three books about AIKIDO which I am offering for sale on Trade Me today. The other books - "Akido Exercises" and "Best Aikido: The Fundamentals" - are in separate auctions.]

From Amazon.com:

"Aikido was created in Japan in the 1920's by Morihei Ueshiba, also known as Osensei. To possess the skills, techniques and attitude of the true practitioner of aikido, one must achieve a very high level of integration of the powers of mind and body, the harmonious combination of physical means and ethical motives. By controlling body position and learning how to harmonize vital physical and mental powers, anyone (regardless of size, strength or weight) can fend off attacks using this sophisticated martial art. Written and illustrated by husband/wife team, Oscar Ratti and Adele Westbrook, Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere, with over 1,200 illustrations, includes many Aikido techniques"

"If you wish to learn the art of Aikido and could only have one book; this would be it. It is effectively illustrated, better than photos. From history and theory, dojo etiquette and fundamental techniques of defense...all is covered. This book will give you broad overview of the mental and spiritual underpinnings of Aikido as a whole. Must have this book in every library."
