About This Item

Although aikido is often thought of as a nonviolent, noncompetitive martial art, the use of weapons was introduced by its founder, O'Sensei Morihei Ueshiba.

In fact, aikido techniques that use wooden weapons can enrich all aspects of your practice, helping you to understand both basic and advanced aikido technical tactics as well as conceptual strategies and skills.

Building on the authors' belief that no empty-hand system is complete without weapons training, Aikido Weapons Techniques demonstrates weapon use both as a training tool to better illustrate aikido principles, and as a self-defense against weapon attacks.

Aikido Weapons Techniques focuses on the three primary weapons used in aikido:
- Ken (wooden sword)
- Jo (wooden staff)
- Tanto (wooden knife)

A complete discussion of each weapon is included, with descriptions of the stances, grips, techniques, defenses, forms and training appropriate for each.

With over 200 step-by-step photographs and detailed instructions, this book provides an in-depth exploration of weapons use in aikido-from its spiritual implications to technical theory and practical use.
