5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction into an important concept, 23 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Ki in Daily Life (Paperback)
Tohei Sensei's great skill is to simplify an otherwise cryptic and mysterious topic for the Western mind.

By highlighting simple ki development exercises he allows people to gain an understanding of an abstract metaphysical topic that has often been closely guarded by teachers of the East.

The lesson of this book is that ki development does not end when stepping off a dojo mat. By focusing on how the 'mind leads body' Tohei Sensei shows how greater cultivation of ki leads to improved attitudes, mentality, spirit, energy, health and empathy.

Whilst Aikido is a martial art and teaches self-defence it is also a metaphor for how we choose to live in the world. Ki in Daily Life adds to this teaching by showing us how to be calm, relaxed and centred so that we can deal with life in a positive way.
