Hello Everybody

I currently live in a location where there is not instructors for aikido and was wondering if its possible to self train. I have see the art but moved before I had a chance to join.
If its possible does anybody know any links to online training sites, hints or tips. I would greatly appreciate any help you can give me.

Thanks Ben Woodhead
You should check out Aikido World Journal at

They have a section on Technical Tips listed on the left side of the homepage.

You can also see Round Earth Publishing at
They have two books "Ki In Aikido: A Sampler of Ki Exercises" and "Ki Exercises for Teaching and Training" both by C,M. Shifflett, that could introduce you to Aikido movement through solo practice.

Ultimately, though, I have to agree with Nick, in that you need to find a teacher to study with in order to gain any kind of proficiency in Aikido.

It is not practice that makes perfect, it is correct practice that makes perfect.
