The Secret Weapon of Aikido - Tegatana - The Tomiki Way

Book Summary:

Quoted from the Foreword:

This is not a book for beginners, although they can find here a lot of information to develop their aikido.

This is a book about basics for advanced students.

After many years of copying the movements of important aikido teachers, there is a time for everyone to take responsibility for your own aikido. By studying the origin of our aikido, we can understand the underlying principles.

Kenji Tomiki and his lifetime Uke and assistant, Hideo Oba, laid down the principles for Randori Aikido through the way of Kata.

This book is not a sequence of all the techniques in the kata, but it is a search for the underlying principles.
