Hello Ethan. Welcome aboard.
Since you have done the humble thing by NOT mentioning your books, I will do the honors. Your twin titles "Bukiwaza, Basic and Advanced: Aiki Jo" and "Bukiwaza, Basic and Advanced: Aiki Ken" are both excellent and detailed texts on weapons techniques. I would recommend them to anyone, regardless of style.
I hope you're not here just to ask questions, as I'm sure that your opinions and experiences would be of interest to us all.
