Product Description

Aikido randori is a competitive practice followed within the Japan Aikido Association (JAA) and allied organizations around the world. Judo and kendo are well known for incorporating competitive practice and, as an extension, competitions. Competitive aikido is less well known but is equal to both as a contemporary budo from historical, technical and educational viewpoints.

It is widely known that competitive aikido was created by Kenji Tomiki (1900-1979). His hard work and research in the latter years of his life concluded in the creation of a systematic practice method for randori in aikido.

This book describes this practice system, from the basics to application, along with an explanation of the underlying principles and a clarification of the historical and theoretical foundations of competitive aikido.

The result is a detailed work of reference that will not only benefit your randori practice but will improve your level of kata and give you a deeper insight into aikido in general.

Tetsuro Nariyama is the Chief Technical Director of the JAA.

Finally the Shodokan world is starting to publish books and some videos. And they have done an outstanding job with this book. In fact the book has the same level and style of Total Aikido (by Shioda) or The Canon of Judo (by Mifune). Even more, includes more photos and presents detailed explanations from basics until advanced Aikido randori. The only thing I miss is the chance to buy a better edition (hard cover) with higher quality in paper, photos and edition. I hope this is just a first step to promote seriously technical knowledege of Shodokan Aikido. Well done!

If you are teaching Tomiki style aikido, this is a perfect aid. Who do you ask if you are unclear and want to check coaching points rather than making it up? This manual does just that...great coaching points making for quality work. It's like having Shihan Nariyama next to you as an advisor!

A great book to get from the basics of Shodokan Aikido to more advanced topics. The explanations are clear, with many pointers aimed at improving the technique. The pictures are good, clear and illustrate the description really well.

A must get for anyone practising Aikido.
