Format: Paperback
Yamada's first book is a good, affordable, yet slim, basic introduction to aikido, and he acknowledges as much. The b&w photos are for the most part very clear, and do much to convey the grace and attitude necessary in this elegant martial art. This was my first purchase of an aikido book, to be followed later by Yamada's The New Aikido Complete, a five star book, that stays permanently on my bedside table. If you are new to any of the martial arts, you will learn something from Aikido Complete. Treat yourself to studying one of the greats; it is money and time well spent, and who knows, it may come in handy one day. For a more thorough tour of Aikido by Yamada, try The New Aikido Complete.

This one is a winner as a basic Aikido guide. The directions are clear, though some photos could use a few enhancements. If you are new to Aikido, look for a copy of this out of print classic.

This is one of the best books for a Westerner regarding the basisics of Aikido and it should serve as a good review for advancaed students.

I would and do recommend this work for all who are students of aikido.

I like the book and how it teaches you step by step, and that you can see clear on how to do the moves.
