    Aikido Handbook

    The Aikido student handbook is a must read for any person thinking of beginning a serious study of Aikido. It is also quite useful for the continuing student. It breaks down all of the main terminology and pronunciations of the Japanese that you will encounter during your time in the dojo. It also explains in plain terms the etiquette that one will be expected to know as you conduct yourself in the training hall. Most important of all, it outlines the basic techniques that you must learn at every step to progress from one rank to another, while briefly identifying the philosophical and practical aspects of each. This work is truly the Aikido student handbook, which all Aikidoka should carry with them to their training everyday. (In the same way each good Scout carries theirs.)

    Great for beginning aikidoka

    I loan my copy to any new student asking, "What should I read?". Not overwhelming for beginers like most books, but gives them enough information to give them a good start. Although etiquette varies from dojo to dojo, the information provided in this book can help the newbie avoid embarrassing moments.

    I got this book when I joined an Aikido class

    This book saved me from most of the uncertainty that comes from being the 'New Guy' in a class. It is easy to read and gives a great overview of what to expect when starting Aikido training. I recommend it to anyone beginning or thinking about beginning Aikido training.
