Budo Training in Aikidoby Morihei Ueshiba
Written by the founder of modern
Budo Training in Aikido was originally published as Budo Renshu in 1933, and remains the first and foremost resource on the topic. Since the art of Aikido has splintered into many different factions there is a developing trend to return to its "roots" and Budo Training in Aikido will appeal to this growing number of Aikido purists.
Written by the founder of modern Aikido this reissue provides the full text of the original with minor editorial corrections (obvious errors have been corrected to match the 424 original illustrations). The principles and essence of technique (standing and rear, sitting, half-sitting, and others) are explained in detail with technical illustrations throughout. Budo Training in Aikido provides an all-encompassing and essential guide to modern Aikido.

This was a work book O'Sensai made for his Students back in Japan. And anyone that wants to learn Aikido the way O'Sensai wanted it learned would try the techniques the way there explained here
This is the first book written by Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido. This was intended as a technical manual for his students and not for those outside the Dojo. It has the diagrams for completing 166 techniques. If you are looking for a book to explain Aikido and the History of O'Sensei, this is not the book for you. But if you want to have the Bokk that O'Sensei wanted his students to use for review.....this is a must.
