Bruce Klickstein / 1st edition, North Atlantic Books (1987)
Summary: This is a beginner's book, and does not try to cover a large number of techniques. It touches briefly on Aikido history and philosophy, presents a few "Tools for training" (aiki taiso), and five simple applications of basic techniques. The photos are helpful and the text concise and clear. There is a glossary and forewords by Morihiro Saito and George Leonard. Also available in hardback, ISBN 0938190865.
