“The newly revised and reissued “Takemusu Aikido, Volume 1: Background & Basics” by the late Morihiro Saito and Stanley Pranin is a significant addition to anyone’s Aikido technical library.
This review will provide an overview of the book and compare the first printing in 1994 with the just released 2007 printing.
One of the many enhancements in the new printing are the numerous photos that highlight Aikido history and the roles of O-Sensei and Saito Sensei in creating and spreading the art. The clarity of all the photos is much improved over the 1994 printing.
The introductory section provides useful background material on the principles and history of Aikido that gives context to the technical chapters.”
