Re: Aikido Books

The books that influenced me the most include:

1. Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere - Westbrook/Ratti

2. Total Aikido - Gozo Shioda

3. Dynamic Aikido - Gozo Shioda

These two books I found while I was visiting Singapore, and they are very nice as well (both are written in English):

4. The Hidden Roots of Aikido (Aiki Jujutsu Daitoryu) - Shiro Omiya

5. Aikido: The Heavenly Road - Kenji Shimizu

All of these are excellent books, but my favorite is in the #1 spot - It's quite in-depth, but a great reference!
