Budo training in Aikido: download free pages
This is the first book written by Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido. This was intended as a technical manual for his students and not for those outside the Dojo. It has the diagrams for completing 166 techniques. If you are looking for a book to explain Aikido and the History of O'Sensei, this is not the book for you. But if you want to have the Bokk that O'Sensei wanted his students to use for review.....this is a must.
A good book to show what Aikido techniques are about
Budo Training in Aikido is a book filled with 166 different Aikido techniques with steps on how to do each of them. This book, however, has very little written about the founder or the style itself. It talks a little about the techniques that are in the book and includes some Budo poems. This is more of a manual of the techniques of Aikido rather than an explanation for the style itself. If you are looking for a good book that explains everything about Aikido and our founder, Morihei Ueshiba, rather than one that walks through 166 techniques, then I would strongly recomend looking for a different book, such as "Aikido and the Dynamic Sphear", and "Invincable Warrior", both by John Stephens.
