Morihiro Saito: Takemusu Aikido, Volume 3 — Basics Concluded, now an ebook

“Rounding out your basics with Kaitennage, Koshinage, Tenchinage, Jujinage, and more!”

Takemusu Aikido: Basics Concluded is the third volume of this comprehensive series presenting the aikido of Morihei Ueshiba O-Sensei. Volume 3 covers the following series of techniques: koshinage, tenchinage, kaitennage, jujinage, morotedori kokyuho and suwariwaza kokyuho. This work is profusely illustrated with more than 500 photos and includes detailed, step-by-step explanations of each technique. Bilingual, Japanese and English.

Morihiro Saito, 9th dan, is one of aikido’s most highly acclaimed teachers and was active for 56 years in the art. He was one of the founder Ueshiba’s closest students and operated Ueshiba’s country dojo in Iwama, Ibaragi Prefecture while serving as caretaker of the Aiki Shrine. Saito is well-known internationally due to his numerous technical works and frequent instructional that which took him to more than twenty countries.

From Morihiro Saito’s Introduction:

It has been twenty-seven years since the passing of the founder and today many different styles of aikido exist. The result has been that teachers have taught freely based on their individual ways of thinking.

Of course, it is a fine thing for instructors to teach based on their own ideas. However, I am compelled to feel somewhat uncomfortable that such a situation will result in confusion over the nature of the aikido that the founder laboriously formulated over a lifetime. The reason is that today in aikido there are those who do not recognize the validity of weapons techniques employing the aiki ken and aiki jo. Moreover, there are some whose aikido techniques are very different from those of the founder. There remains little trace of his genius in this kind of aikido.

As a direct student of the founder and the person in charge of his personal dojo, I constantly remind myself of my responsibility to faithfully transmit his teachings as I instruct my students. For this reason, the Takemusu Aikido technical series being published by Aiki News is very important to me. I sincerely hope that Volume 3 will be of some help to those who cannot participate in my seminars or those who are unable to come here to Iwama to learn.
