Hi,

Does anyone know of any place where I can get detailed descriptions and diagrams for the various throws and techniques such as Ikkyo, Nikyo, etc.

A couple of days ago I posted here for feedback on a book titled "Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere"

Two responses stated it was good and commented on the illustrations being great.

They were correct(as far as I can tell provided my limited experiences) I thought the illustrations and explanations were good as soon as I figured out the sequencing b/w illustrations. Try to find it at a discount as it is hardback and a little pricey but i dont regret spending the cash on it and it will probabely serve me longer than other books i have purchased in the past (including many university textbooks I keep on my shelf because they wouldn't give me 2 bucks back for 'em at the end of the semester.

Boy that was alot of rambling

Sadly, though, detailed descriptions are pretty useless. You could try "Budo" , O Senseis training manual which used to be top secret. It's illustrated too.
If I'm looking for tips outside the dojo, I look for clips on the web. There's a couple here, a few more at the aikidofaq, some clips of O Sensei and Tohei Sensei around (I searched from http://www.google.com, one site with pre ww2 clips) and a surprising abundance of clips made by the Yugoslavia Aikikai. Some are great. Some aren't.
Hope that's useful,
andrew

Any fairly large bookstore will have a section on martial arts, Aikido included. If you have some time to kill, just visit one and flip through some books. I can recommend Saotome Sensei's books, "The Principles of Aikido" and "Aikido and the Harmony of Nature"; they have great pictures and explainations.

Unfortunately, pictures can be deceptive. I just came back from a seminar with Ikeda Sensei (thanks Musubi Dojo for making me feel welcome!:)), and if I took pictures of what he was doing, I'd miss at least half of what he was really doing because his movements have become so small and subtile.
