As others note, the beginning is a biography of Morihei Ueshiba, founder of Aikido, and then the bulk of the book are many photographs of techniques. The biography is written by Kisshomaru Ueshiba and was fascinating to me. It is quite spiritual and fascinating and the philosophies described here carry through in the description of the techniques.

The principles, philosophy, and basic ideas of aikido. You could call it a book on aikido theory. It was my first book, initially in Swedish. It has also been published in German and Czech.
All the attack techniques in aikido explained, and how to do them correctly. This is an often neglected field in aikido training. We focus on the aikido defense techniques but forget to learn the attacks properly - but then the development of our aikido skills will suffer.
So, I wrote this book. I developed a comprised system of sword and staff exercises aikiken and aikijo , initially for my own students to get familiar with these things. Other aikido students seemed to appreciate it, so I made this book. The exercises are explained in detail, with practical and spiritual aspects of the sword arts, how to teach them, equipment for training, and more. This is evident already in the name of this martial art. Although essential in many ways, far from all aikido students know how to deal with it and integrate it in their training.
Therefore, I wrote this book explaining ki, with several simple basic exercises on how to awaken, increase, and use the life energy.
