Ellis and Eastman Sensei's diplomas signed by - Osensei Ueshiba - Kenshiro Abbe - Masahilo Nakazono - Masamichi Noro - TK Chiba - Doshu Moriteru Ueshiba.

This is a no nonsense book on traditional aikido taught as a martial art in the 1950s by Kenshiro Abbe Sensei - If you are looking for fantasy aikido - floating around the universe and the planets ? this book is simply not for you. If you are into no touch throws and aiki ribbon dancing or even a bit of magical Ki ? keep your money in your hand bag.

The early tearchers of Henry Ellis and Derek Eastman were Kenshiro Abbe Sensei - Tadashi Abe Sensei - Masahil Nakazono Sensei - Masamichi Noro Sensei - TK Chiba Sensei - All these teachers taught Aikido as a Martial Art - Ki was virtually unheard of except that it was a part of your application of technique, nothing magical. It was a time to be proud to be known as an Aikidoka rather than be embarressed as many are today with their spiritual excuses to avoid a true challenge.
