Takemusu Aikido - Volume 1, Background & Basics

Book Summary:

This book is Volume 1 of Morihiro Saito’s final series of Aikido technical manuals. It presents variations of ikkyo, nikyo, sankyo, and yonkyo techniques, the most essential of aikido's basic forms. It contains detailed step-by-step explanations with many close-up photos. The First Edition of this volume is the most difficult of the "Takemusu" set to get, as it was never reprinted. This is because, unlike the other four volumes, it was entirely formatted in English, and would have needed to be re-edited into the same bilingual format as the others before it is reprinted. UPDATE (March '07) Newly edited, expanded and bilingually formatted edition released. See revised cover photo in this listing.
