Book of Ki : Co-Ordinating Mind and Body in Daily Life, Koichi Tohei
3 Koichi Tohei Book of Ki : Co-Ordinating Mind and Body in Daily Life
Tokyo Japan Publications, Inc. 1989 0870403796 / 9780870403798 Tenth Printing Softcover Near Fine 
1989 reprint. Very nice condition. Pages clean and unmarked, light age tanning to page edges. Cover has slight corner/edge wear and old price sticker on rear. The principles of Ki lie in bringing to light man's natural strength and his (her) hidden natural abilities. ; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; Review: "A Good Introduction to Ki ...... Book of Ki is a good basic introduction to the use of energy and how your mind and body work. It contains many useful and instructional photographs and does a good job of explaining what ki is and how it works. It stays away from a lot of the more mystical aspects and is pretty basic. Koichi Tohei states that "To extend Ki you must believe that you are doing so. In other words, you must use your mind positively." Many books lead you to believe that Ki is some mystical force that only comes from special training, but this book explains that it has a lot to do with your mind and your intention, and then goes on to give you basic instructions to begin to develop the use of this energy which we all have access to. A good introduction and worth reading if you have any interest in this part of the martial arts." (315os,0514)
