Weekly Special: “Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu & the Omoto religion”

We have another outstanding offer for you this week in the form of two essential books for every serious aikidoka. The first is Stanley Pranin’s Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu: Conversations with Daito-ryu Masters, the first book in any language published on the subject of Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu, the main technical influence on Morihei Ueshiba’s aikido. Our second book offering is Kyotaro Deguchi’s excellent biography of his grandfather, The Great Onisaburo Deguchi. Onisaburo, the co-founder of the Omoto sect, had a tremendous impact on Morihei Ueshiba, both in terms of his spiritual views, and as one of Morihei’s greatest supporters. Deguchi played a pivotal role in launching Morihei on his career as a professional martial artist that would culminate in the creation of aikido.
