Product Details


“Nakamura Tempu’s story is an inspiration. This book is both a great read and a valuable contribution to the conversation regarding the effects of mental attitude on health and well-being.”
— Miriam E. Nelson, PhD, New York Times best-selling author of the Strong Women book series
“Many years ago, in Japan, I was very fortunate to study directly with Nakamura Tempu. His teaching has given my life a strong base, and at difficult times of my life abroad I have drawn strength from it. I congratulate Stephen Earle on an inspiring and carefully researched biography, which relates Tempu-sensei’s life to the turbulent times in which he lived and outlines his martial philosophy of the unification of mind and body.”
—Naoko Matsubara, internationally acclaimed woodcut artist
“Nakamura Tempu is known in the West as a teacher of the aikido master Tõhei Kōichi (1920–2011), who took from him the rallying cry “unification of mind and body.” Stephen Earle’s stimulating biography draws together the many strands of Nakamura’s life, and sets this fascinating figure against events and personalities of the day in Japan, China, Europe, and the United States.”
—David Waterhouse, Professor Emeritus, Department of East Asian Studies, University College, University of Toronto
