Don't worry, Joao. By the time you are ready for your first test you Will know the names of the techniques. At least the ones on your first test!

Well, this website is a good start.

It's best to ask you Sensei to recommend a book, as your style may differ in technique to those in a book that I might recommend.

Glad you liked your first lesson. I'm coming up to my first grading soon, as is my 9-year old daughter. We both love Aikido! :)

Try this, Joao, http://www.aikiweb.com/wiki/techniques

It's the 5th link downward from the upper left corner, and it has what Aikiweb considers a general consensus of terms for attacks, and techniques. The rest of the aiki-wiki itself has plenty to offer as well.

Enjoy your next class as well as your first!

Yeah, don't worry too much about the names of the techniques, you'll pick them up. In my first grading we were given a list of techniques in the order we would have to do them... During the grading I actually started the technique Sensei asked for rather than the one that was supposed to come next, and I didn't even know I'd picked up the names. Of course the other three did the technique that was supposed to be next so it looked like I got it wrong :rolleyes:

I wouldn't count on just listening at class for remembering techniques. I've seen plenty of ppl (well, more like 5) who got to their first test without knowing any technique name. I wish I could give you some of the links I used to learn technique names, but that was more than a year ago...

If you can spare the money, Aikido3D (http://www.aikido3d.com/) is a good learning tool for techniques and their names!
