REVIEW:
Kodo, Ancient Ways

Kensho Furuya,
Ohara Publications Inc. $16.95

This book is a call to consciousness for any martial artist regardless of style or ability.

This collection of essays by Reverend Kensho Furuya have previously appeared in "Ancient Ways", a column in Martial Arts Training magazine. They collect writings from 1988 to 1995. Aficionados will appreciate that they have been republished, and those unacquainted with Furuya’s writings are in for a happy surprise.

Furuya has a unique ability to combine humor and consideration for our late 20th century lifestyles with solid lessons from Aikido’s traditional roots. As practitioners of Chinese martial arts, we have found much wisdom in Kodo, Ancient Ways and recommend it to all martial artists desiring to deepen their practice.
