Traditional Aikido - Volume 1 - Basic Techniques

Book Summary:

This is the first volume in a series of five. Four years after the founder passed away, Saito Morihiro Shihan laid the foundation of his systematic approach to the art. The book contains the basic moves for training with sword, empty hands and staff, presenting Aikido as a combined system (Riai). Hundreds of technical photos illustrate the brief text, complemented by a number of historical photos of the founder and then Doshu Kisshomaru as well as shots of training scenes in Iwama. The softcover edition (ISBN 0870409441) first published in 1995. In 2008, a publisher in Europe (Ondefo-Verlag) began reprinting this series. As of 2010, only Volumes 1-3 have been reproduced.
