I really like CM Shifflett's writings on aikido and ki and wish there was more to read than this and "Ki in Aikido." But I'll take it. Seems that Ki Society flavored aikido has few books written about it, and Shifflett's are both instructive and entertaining.

One of the best, most informative martial arts books I've ever read. And I don't even practice Aikido.

This book has some of everything.

The whole thing is like listening to your erudite, rather bossy, good friend tell you everything she wished she knew about Aikido 25 years earlier. The author rambles happily from topic to topic. It's all interesting.

Bizarrely, I would say that this book is written for raw beginners and their teachers. It explains the basic principles of Aikido, with brilliant suggestions on different ways to teach them and notes on what can go wrong.

The rest of us in between

Amazing book, step by step instructions of the exercises, covers a lot about why the exercises are done, I really loved it and I always have it on my side and always consult it.
