Aikido Kyohan-The Definitive Guide to the Way of Harmony

While aikido's fundamental philosophy of non-violence makes it appealing to those seeking spiritual growth, it is also a well developed self-defense system which does not rely on physical strength or size. This is one of the few books that explores both of these aspects of this popular martial discipline.

Complete Aikido is the authoritative text on this enlightening martial art and self-defense system. This definitive guide is packed with history and philosophy, and offers precise descriptions with over 400 black-and-white photographs illustrating the correct—and incorrect—way to execute aikido techniques. In the almost thirty years since the death of aikido founder Morihei Ueshiba O'Sensei, his many students have spread his philosophy and vision across the world, including author Roy Suenaka.

Complete Aikido provides insights into the three leading styles of aikido: the original art developed by founder Morihei Ueshiba O'Sensei, the Shin-Shin Toitsu aikido of Koichi Tohei Sensei, and the Suenaka-ha Tetsugaku-ho aikido of Roy Suenaka Sensei. Both a fascinating martial biography and a comprehensive instructional manual, Complete Aikido is a must for all practitioners seeking the way of harmony.
