Aiki Ken & Aiki Jo DVDs + 1-year subscription ($39.95)
This special offer includes the famous Aiki Ken and Aiki Jo DVD set by Morihiro Saito Sensei, 9th dan. These DVDs cover all of the basic Iwama weapons forms of the aikdo sword and staff curriculum as taught by Saito Sensei over a period of several decades. In addition, as a special bonus, we are adding a one-year subscription to the Aikido Journal Members Site.
The Aiki Ken and Jo DVDs are the authoritative reference materials for Saito Sensei’s weapons system. They were shot specifically for the serious practitioner interested in learning the Aiki Ken and Jo and include detailed explanations and different angle shots to facilitate understanding of important details.

These DVDs present the most detailed instruction available on aikido weapons and clearly depict each sword and staff movement in an easily-understood manner.
