With the encouragement of Martial Arts researcher - author - Abdul Rashid - Ellis and Eastman were inspired to put their personal `documented true factual history recorded in to book form to memorialize all those involved in the early days, never to be lost or forgotten.
The books credit many other Judoka and Aikidoka that were involved from the Abbe Era, honourable people who played a role in the early days when Aikido was a Martial Art, there were so many others that are remembered who later helped to promote and protect the legacy of Kenshiro Abbe Sensei.
