    Default The history/origins of Budo

    Hi guys,


    I'm looking for a bit of information and hoping someone here might be able to help.


    I’m currently in the early stages of putting together an article on the history and origins of Budo and its associated arts (Aikido ideally, though anything Budo related would also be appropriate).


    In short, I’m looking for recommendations (from personal experience) for any kind of comprehensive source material (ideally a book/books) that give a good overall background to this topic.


    Any recommendations of books or authors would be gratefully received.


    Many thanks.


    Pete

    Try Professor Bodiford's entries on budo in Martial Arts of the World: An Encyclopedia. His entries are essentially the same in the 2003 and the 2010 editions. For aikido, though, you need the 2010 edition, where Peter Goldsbury wrote most of the aiki-related entries. The books are very expensive, so try to find them in the reference section of your library.
