Yes, I sincerely hope that Peter can compile his Transmission, Inheritance, and Emulation columns into a book some day. It is already such an amazing perspective into the art, and a tremendous gift to practitioners. Others? What's your favorite aikido book, and why? -- Jun

Posted 2020-05-27 12:09:56 by Jun Akiyama News URL: [url="https://kogenbudo.org/great-aikido-aikido-greats/"]https://kogenbudo.org/great-aikido-aikido-greats/[/url] Here is a lovely article from Ellis Amdur on his thoughts on what components constitute a "great" practitioner of classical aikido. From the article: “I wish to tease out the components that I have observed among those who were able to – and did – protect their training hall against dojo breakers or people who challenged them on the mat, striving to embarrass them or worse; those who handled taryujiai; and those who had or have a particular brilliance that has garnered them true respect, not only among other aikidoka, but among practitioners of other martial arts as well. I am making as clear a distinction as I can between the excellent aikido practitioner, whatever their rank and true virtuosos.” ___________________ ~~~ To submit a news item to AikiWeb's front page, [url="http://www.aikiweb.com/news/submit.html"]click here[/url]. ~~~

From the essay: “Whenever he had me in an nikkyo or sankyo lock, I had nowhere to go to escape the pain. Instead, I would go wherever he directed my body, not because I was compliant, but because I had no choice. I remember once asking some Russian uchi-deshi how they were enjoying their morning training and their answer was a half-joking, but also half-serious reply of, 'Every day he breaks us.'“ ___________________ ~~~ To submit a news item to AikiWeb's front page, [url="http://www.aikiweb.com/news/submit.html"]click here[/url]. ~~~
