Book Review:

  • The Sword of No-Sword, Life of the Master Warrior Tesshu
    John Stevens
    , author
    by Cheryl Matrasko

    John Stevens’ book, The Sword of No-Sword, Life of the Master Warrior Tesshu is an excellent biography of master swordsman, Yamaoka Tesshu. Tesshu is revealed from his early years under classical samurai training, through the development of his Sword of No-Sword style, intertwined with his spiritual growth . . .


  • Budo Secrets
    Teachings of the Martial Arts Masters
    John Stevens, author.

    by Cheryl Matrasko

    High on my list for both good reading and personal interest for the serious Aikidoist is “Budo Secrets: Teachings of the Martial Arts Masters”, by Professor John Stevens,
    published by Shambhala, Publications, Inc. Boston & London.


  • The Philosophy of Aikido
    John Stevens, author

    by Cheryl Matrasko

    The book: “The Philosophy of Aikido” by well published author Professor John Stevens is an excellent educational examination on the development of the philosophy behind the training and discipline of Aikido, the martial art.
