Roy Yukio Suenaka Sensei is one of them.
Complete Aikido provides insights into the three leading styles of aikido: the original art developed by founder Morihei Ueshiba O'Sensei, the Shin-Shin Toitsu aikido of Koichi Tohei Sensei, and the Suenaka-ha Tetsugaku-ho aikido of Roy Suenaka Sensei. Both a fascinating martial biography and a comprehensive instructional manual, Complete Aikido is a must for all practitioners seeking the way of harmony.About the Authors:
