“Understanding Aikido” by Olivier Gaurin

“Olivier Gaurin is a scholar of Aikido, author of several books on Aikido as well as historical fictions set in medieval Japan. Concerned about a drift of our art towards the sport, he reminds us about the cultural aspects that are an intrinsic part of Aikido. Having lived in Japan for over 20 years, he has immersed himself into the ancestral culture of his country of adoption and shares his thoughts on how 21st century Aikidoka should apprehend their practice.”
