Biographie de l'auteur :

Soke Shioda Gozo Sensei was born in Shinjuku, Tokyo, in 1915. His father, Shioda Seiichi was a prominent pediatrician and medical academic. It was Shioda Seiichi who encouraged his son to take up various forms of exercise. As a consequence, Gozo Shioda practised kendo, gymnastics and then Judo as a youth. It was in the art of judo where Gozo Shioda excelled, having reached the level of third dan by the time he had reached his mid-teens. A turning point in his life came at age 18, when his father sent him to the Kobukan to study under Morihei Ueshiba Sensei, a man rumoured to be invincible . On his first visit to the Kobukan, Soke Gozo Shioda was invited by Ueshiba to use his Judo skills to try to throw him. Launching an attack, sceptical of his opponent s ability, Gozo found himself flying through the air, hitting the ground head first, having no idea how he got there. The very next day, May 24, 1932, the young Shioda joined the Kobukan and commenced his aikido career under Ueshiba Sensei. He left the Kobukan in 1941 when he had finished his university studies. The advent of the second World war prevented any practice of aikido. After the war, Gozo peformed his first public demonstration. In 1954, in front of an audience of 15,000, he was awarded the grand prize for best demonstration. Within a year of the demonstration, Soke Gozo Shioda was heading his own aikido dojo, the Yoshinkan, named after his father s original dojo. He was awarded his 9th dan by Morihei Ueshiba Sensei in 1961. His outstanding contribution to the promotion of Japanese Martial arts in general and Aikido in particular was further acknowledged by the award of tenth dan by the International Martial arts Federation in 1984, along with the title of Meijin or Grandmaster. Gozo died in 1994, leaving an organisation which has expanded all over Japan, the Americas, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia. Meijin Gozo Shioda was convinced that through the silent language of Aikido, all differences between peoples and between cultures disappear, making peace and a harmonious co-existence a reality rather than an ideal.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

In his comprehensive autobiography, legendary Aikido grandmaster Gozo Shioda tells of his exciting life. Born in Tokyo in 1915, Shioda excelled as a student of Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of modern Aikido. In 1954, Shioda entered the All Japan Martial Arts Exhibition, and won first prize. Holder of the ninth-rank black belt, he founded Yoshinkan Aikido. In 1988, he was awarded the title of Aikido Meijin (Grand Master) by the International Martial Arts Federation. He was also chief instructor for the Tokyo Metropolitan Police, the Air Self-defence Force, the Japanese National Railways, and Sophia, Meiji Gakuin, and Takushoku 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 centre line. About 20 rare photos of the author, chronicling his life in Aikido, are also included. Gozo Shioda died in 1994. Gozo s son Yasuhisa has worked long to promote Aikido. In 1984 he went to Britain, where he taught Aikido for three years, laying the foundation for its development in that country. In 2007, he became soke (master) and the kancho (president) of Yoshinkan Aikido. KEY ELEMENTS: **Traces the highly influential life story of the greatest postwar Grand Master **Shioda is revered in the martial arts world: the readership for this book is potentially enormous **Includes personal and revealing anecdotes about the founder of modern Aikido Morihei Ueshiba **Offers a concise overview of the key elements of Aikido, spiritual & physical **Includes 20 rare photos of the author **Afterword written by Yasuhisa Shioda, the author s son, who is also a grandmaster and the current kancho (president) of Yoshinkan Aikido **The author s previous books, 'Dynamic Aikido' and 'Total Aikido' are among the best-selling martial arts titles of all time.
