Aikido is excellent exercise, a well developed self-defense system which does not rely on physical strength or size, and--because of its fundamental philosophy of non-violence--it nourishes spiritual growth. Complete Aikido is the authoritative text on this enlightening martial art and self-defense system. With 400 photographs, Roy Yukio Suenaka Sensei describes clearly the execution of aikido techniques, and illuminates the history and philosophy of this martial art. Both a fascinating martial biography and a comprehensive instructional manual, Complete Aikido is a must for all practitioners seeking the way of harmony.
