Overview

Master the techniques of aikido with this illustrated martial arts guide.

Complete Aikido is the authoritative text on this enlightening martial art and self-defense system. This definitive aikido guide is packed with history and philosophy, and offers precise descriptions with over 400 photographs illustrating the correct—and incorrect—way to execute aikido techniques. In the almost thirty years since the death of aikido founder Morihei Ueshiba O'Sensei, his many students have spread his philosophy and vision across the world, including author Roy Suenaka.

Complete Aikido provides insights into the three leading styles of this Japanese martial art: the original art developed by founder Morihei Ueshiba O'Sensei, the Shin-Shin Toitsu aikido of Koichi Tohei Sensei, and the Suenaka-ha Tetsugaku-ho aikido of Roy Suenaka Sensei. Both a fascinating martial biography and a comprehensive instructional manual, this aikido book is a must for all practitioners seeking the way of harmony.

This was one of the most enjoyable books I've ever read. Not only does Seneka Sensei tell entertaining stories, but he throws a little technique in there as well. If you are at all interested in the Martial Arts, read this book. If your not interested in Martial Arts, read this book. You will be!
