Musashi, the famous Japanese swordsman, who was never defeated in over 60 fights, wrote in his book, "Gorin no sho" that the basis off all martial arts is the way of the samurai sword, the Katana. O Sensei Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido, often said to his students that training Aikido without using the sword is not enough. This book introduces for the first time a system founded by Nishio Sensei called Aikido Toho Iai, which is the connection between the art of sword drawing and Aikido technique.
