A Light on Transmission is the unique account of Mitsugi Saotome's personal experiences and development as a live-in student under Morihei Ueshiba, the Founder of Aikido. As one of the last surviving live-in students of the post war era, Saotome Sensei sheds an historically significant light on what it was like to learn from and live with one of the greatest martial artists and sages of modern times. The lessons and stories contained in this book provide a lovingly told window into a bygone era and will be of interest not only to Aikido practitioners and students of martial arts but to anyone taking up the question of how the highest levels of art and culture are passed from one generation to the next.
