Ki, the force behind the Japanese martial art of Aikido is a strange concept to many westerners. Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido, founded by Koichi Tohei in 1974 emphasizes the coordination of mind and body to produce inner strength and stability. Although it is impossible to test the mind directly, state of mind can be revealed through the body by way of ki testing, which serves as a highly sensitive biofeedback tool. This book presents step-by-step instructions and detailed illustrations of ki exercises and testing techniques.
