"The book is presented in much the same way that our dojo eventually ended up teaching our own beginners, and as such, is a very good book for instructors to own. ...the book will be most useful for those who are, or want to practice since it's about 90 percent text and photos presenting technique. There is very little in the way of any other writing for the idle browser. But as usual in books like this, for the long time student of Aikido the good stuff is in the introduction... and as usual I suspect most will simply skip to the pictures. Do yourself a favor and go down to the local bookstore, pick it up and read it. It's short, it's worth it." -EJMAS"It's a very nice format, and brings the text closer to providing the pointers one might actually receive in the dojo from the instructor. ... the book is an easy read, and there is a lot of beneficial material, presented in an excellent format. This book would make a good addition to any Aikido library, regardless of your particular style." -AikiWeb
