3.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction but lacks something, 21 Jan. 2004
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Best Aikido: The Fundamentals (Hardcover)
This book is short on words, but full of well shot images allowing the basic movement of each technique to be described.
It is a handy resource for anyone that practices the art as it attempts to codify the basic movements. Written by both the current Doshu and his father, it must be assumed this is the official version of the basics.
The faq in the front of the book gives a nice official response to the questions of most beginners.
As with all Aikido books of this type it lacks the something from it's static nature and over reliance on posed images; as the first section of the book maintains Aikido is something to be practiced daily under qualified instruction.
I was expecting slightly more than I got from this book.
