"The practice of martial arts is the practice of the development of human communication. I was surprised to find in the United States the traditional training methods at Nippon Kan, especially in its uchideshi program, its commitment to public service anf involvement with the community. I highly recommend this enjoyable book!"
– Shigeru Kawabe, Kancho

"Aikido Sketch Diary shows that the ultimate destination of the uchideshi or live-in student is not "the secret of ki power" or "the ability to vanquish any opponent." The student learns that the real goal is practice itself, the gradual awareness of one’s surroundings, and the appreciation of the present that attention to duty brings."
– George Blankenship
