Review by: dominick robbolino
ive studied nihon goshin aikido for 14 years. I now teach an adult class 4 times a week in east keansburg nj.our classes are right out of this book. we even had sensei kopatov come to our dojo several years ago for a seminar.some of the photos or drawings are a little difficult to understand because of poor quality. but if you have a working knowledge of the move the photos are a good reference.i often refer to the book before a class and build a class out of one or two moves. I have several copies of this book 2 at home,1 in the car, 1 inthe work truck.Never bored always can take a few minutes to check out a move. Ive read the book cover to cover many times and always find something new. it my bible Sensei Dominick Robbolino
