Christopher Curtis Sensei has lived at the feet of his teacher, Shinichi Suzuki Sensei, for close to three decades. His committed character and deep grasp of the Ki principles are a blessing for another generation of students and instructors seeking to understand the Way of the Universe. More than a "training manual," Curtis Sensei’s book offers explanations of the most important aspects of real training, insights into the "inner disciplines" that point the way to our understanding of timeless, universal truths.
This book is used as a reference and guide by all the dojos in Hawaii Ki Federation, and in many on the US Mainland and throughout the English-speaking world. The author teaches throughout Hawaii and travels to teach on the US Mainland and in Europe.
The cover picture is of Maui's long-time Head Instructor Shinichi Suzuki Sensei, a Black Belt Magazine Aikido Hall of Fame honoree in 1970 and a Living Treasure of Hawaii.From the Author :
When I first began training Aikido many years ago, I had little knowledge of practice in Eastern martial arts, and no experience whatsoever of Aikido. The various forms of Aikido practice, the multitude of requirements for what appeared to be an endless series of tests, and the seemingly vague and (who knew!) perhaps arbitrary rules of etiquette which everyone except me seemed to be taking for granted, struck me as somewhat intimidating and possibly even insurmountable.
Why, I asked myself again and again, hadn’t someone simply sat down with pen in hand, and organized all of this multifarious information into one concise booklet? After all, Suzuki Sensei was right here, at our proverbial disposal. He understood the why, the wherefore, and the who of all this confusion.
After almost ten years, and countless hours of interview, discussion, writing, clarifying, re-writing, organizing, agonizing, and finally layout and publishing, I found myself with a fairly clear idea as to why no one had done any of that! And that was the first manual that Suzuki Sensei and I assembled, in 1982. I hope that small effort was adequate for the time. It did seem to serve a purpose. However, more than seventeen years have passed since the first printing, and it now seems appropriate to elaborate that minor edition into something a bit more comprehensive. Not only has much new information been added in this new version, but I think the level of approach has changed significantly. Our sincere hope is that you will find this "Maui Training Manual" not only a help in providing clarification and definition, but also that there is available herein some further insight into the nature of this training, that we give so much of ourselves to, and perhaps even some inspiration.
