Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969) was a visionary whose quest for the true meaning of warriorship led to the creation of the martial art called Aikido, "The Art of Peace". Morihei is considered one of the greatest martial artists in history. His ability to disarm any attacker, throw a dozen men simultaneously, and down and pin opponents without even touching them has accorded his life legendary status. Invincible Warrior presents the real story behind Morihei's achievement, illuminating the man and his teachings. The author describes the people, events, and ideas that influenced Morihei's lifelong spiritual quest and his extraordinary career as a martial artist and teacher. The book includes over two hundred photographs documenting Morihei's life as well as showing the master in action demonstrating the physical techniques of Aikido.
