About The Book
In this first full autobiographical work, legendary Aikido grandmaster Gozo Shiodo tells of his exciting life. Born in Tokyo in 1915, Shioda excelled as a student of Morihei Ueshida, the founder of Aikido. In 1954, Shioda entered the All Japan Martial Arts Exhibition, and won first prize. After attaining a ninth-rank black belt, he founded the Yoshinkan school of Aikido, considered a “hard” style for its rigorous training techniques and emphasis on correct form. In 1988, Shioda was awarded the title of Aikido Master by the International Martial Arts Federation. Over the course of his distinguished career, he was chief instructor for the Tokyo Metropolitan Police, the Air Self-defense Force, the Japanese National Railways, and a number of leading Japanese universities. In Aikido: My Spiritual Journey, Shioda relates moving, personal anecdotes about Ueshiba, and imparts what he learned from his mentor. He also offers a concise overview of the key elements of Aikido, including breath power, focused power, and the power of the center line. About 20 rare photos of the author, chronicling his life in Aikido, are included.
The Afterword to the book was written by Yasuhisa Shioda, the author’s son, who is also a leading figure in the Aikido world.
