Product description


Discovering Aikido analyses the principles that enable the student to learn Aikido efficiently. Many spend their lives searching for the elusive aiki, or fluid power, of Aikido. Although no book can provide a perfect insight, this volume presents the serious practitioner with a better sense of direction and an improved understanding of what is often considered to be one of the most complex martial arts.

About the Author

Rupert M J Atkinson has studied Aikido and related Japanese arts for over twenty years. A graduate in Japanese and Korean Studies, he lives in South Korea where he teaches Aikido under the umbrella of the Korean Aikido Federation, which is affiliated to the Akikai Hombu in Tokyo.
