The best-selling “Tomei na Chikara” (Transparent Power) has sold over 60,000 copies in its original Japanese, and is currently in its 15th printing. The wisdom, philosophy, attitude, and experiences of Sagawa Sensei have been of great value and interest to many people, not just those involved in martial arts. Now at long last the authorized English translation has been published, making this inspirational book available to people who can not read it in the original Japanese.

Aiki is a skill that allows you to neutralize your opponent’s power, after which you can effortlessly use just small power. Aiki eliminates the opponent’s power, so that yours is able to flow through as a Transparent Power, with no resistance possible. It also makes him hold fast to you, unable to disengage himself—it’s really quite difficult.”

Aiki is a technique done by harmonization of energy which succeeds over other techniques that use physical strength and manipulation of joints. With a very deep understanding of Aiki, it is possible for even a small girl to defeat a strong man.”

Transparent Power not only brings to life Yukiyoshi Sagawa, a truly remarkable teacher who had a life-changing impact on hundreds of people, but also begins to reveal the intangible but awe-inspiring thing called Aiki, which is the core idea of this book and the force that transformed Sagawa’s life.
