Aikido is a highly developed martial art form based on standardized principles. The book uses numerous examples of movements in order
to explain these. Both the theoretical background and the method of learning Aikido are clearly explained. In this way the book is interesting for the beginner and advanced pupil alike. 

Besides this, the basics of the foot and hand movements in Aikido are covered. Finer points of detail in the basic techniques are also covered – in addition, applications of the basic techniques are explained. The roles of the defender and the attacker in Aikido are covered in detail. The book content is in accordance with the principles of the mainstream of the worldwide Aikido organization (Aikikai). 

The book concludes with a section containing additional information about Aikido and its training.

Great book! Well written and fairly easy to understand. I would recommend this book for anyone currently taking Aikido or wanting to join a dojo. The book also has a very good vocabulary section as well.
