I saw this book at Barnes and Nobles and had to have it. It is a wonderful companion now. Thank you so much for making my Aikido life easier after seeing the meaning behind the kanji. I'm immersed in calligraphy and have found the ki behind the kanji to be a wonderful teaching tool in itself.
"Re: great book" Thank you very much for your message. I simply saw a need and filled it. I have studied Japanese for many years and it was frustrating for me to not be able to find an Aikido terminology book in both English and Japanese. I just hate studying Japanese that is written in English and not in Japanese. You don't really learn a whole lot that way. Anyway - thank you again and I hope you enjoy the book.
