Details
Morihiro Saito is the author of Aikido: Its Heart and Appearance as well as the highly acclaimed technical series Traditional Aikido, published in the early 1970s, and Takemusu Aikido, published in the mid-1900s. Saito Sensei enrolled as a student of Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba in 1946 in Iwama. One of the art’s foremost technicians, Saito Sensei was the acknowledged authority on Aikido weapons training. He operated Ueshiba’s private dojo in Iwama, Japan and served as caretaker of the Aiki Shrine for more than 30 years. Saito Sensei travelled extensively throughout the world for over three decades teaching his comprehensive aikido training methods.

Aikido: Its Heart and Appearance was first printed in March 1975 and published by Minato Research & Publishing Co, Ltd.
