On the blog Kinonagare.it

(Paolo Riccardi, Corrado Calossi, Andrea Ciambellini) there have been published these two articles:

Paolo Riccardi (Ki Dojo, Firenze, Italy) wrote the following article

"From “How to do” to “What to do”, now."

Links to the Italian and English version here:



Corrado Calossi (Ki Aikido Bologna, Italy) wrote the article that follows (in a certain way) Paolo's one.

What Are We? Where Do We Come From? Etc.

A Tribute to the legacy of Yoshigasaki Sensei - An Invitation

Now that we are beginning to accept the profound loss of our teacher, I feel that we may need to take another step in remembering his legacy: what he has accomplished during his teaching in Europe. Especially those who have worked with him from the early years would be able to give an overview that would be very instructive for younger students. If you're interested, please read my more elaborate letter " A tribute to the work of Yoshigasaki Sensei' at link below.
