The Kingdom of Dust should be on every aikido practitioner’s reading list. It is a moving story. A story of blood, sweat, and tears under one of leading aikido masters – T.K. Chiba sensei. It is a story about heart and the journey through darkness of an uchideshi to the birth of an aikido professional with insight as to how to connect to students. Students who often feel alone and naked as they step on the mat and explore the elusive world of aikido. Sensei Piotr Masztalerz shares his personal journey and what it means to connect with heart and it sharing his personal journey that has the quality to transform and create a new heart.
