Book Title: Aikido and Randori (http://www.aikiweb.com/books/detail.html?book_id=153)
Book Author: Allbright, Scott
Review author: David Findlay (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Rating given: 4 (out of 5)
An excellent reference and definitely worth the asking price. <br /> <br /> It is somewhat wordy at times, however I'd guess that this is only in an attempt to explain things in a definitive and complete manner.<br /> <br /> The book takes you solidly through the basics of the shodokan system, but does not go through blow-by-blow descriptions of the various kata. Instead the fundamentals of the kihon waza are covered nicely, as well as some good narrative regarding randori practice.<br /> <br /> Shodokan books are few and far between and I am sure that the reader will get something out of this book.<br /> <br /> Buy it.
