The Essence of Aikido by Bill Sosa

Morihei Ueshiba envisioned a style that could be both non-aggressive and still effective in a multitude of self-defense situations. From that vision came the art of aikido. As a student, you will be taught to respect the body of your opponent. The techniques should never cause permanent damage. The pain you inflict will be momentary. The aikido student is taught to search for eternal harmony. But this training has no end, for aikidoists believe perfection of character is never complete.

This is an excellent book for all Aikido students. Easy to read and follow. Great book to understand what it is to start a martial art, espcially aikido. Basics are answered and this book will help you from your very first class. From dojo etiquette, how to fold your hakama, history, philosophy, basic techniques and waza.
