Thorough Visual Guide to Aikido,
This review is from: Total Aikido: The Master Course (Hardcover)
Total Aikido is the definitive guide to this martial art. Gozo Shioda is truely a master and presents us with a concise, clear, and visual guide. As a beginner, I found the photography on every page incredibly helpful, so check out the video I've attached to get a better idea of the book's visual presentation. A must-read for any martial-arts student.
I also recommend The Philosophy of Aikido.
