Hi Rachael, Some books I really like are Angry White Pyjama's (dont lynch me Yoshinkan folks) by robert twigger, total aikido by gozo shioda, budo: teachings of the founder by morihei ueshiba (cant remember if I got that title right but im tired
), hope you enjoy Aikiweb.
Hi Rachael from another newbie. :-)
As a Yoshinkan'er, I liked it too.
It's a good work of fiction: very entertaining.
It's funny, 'cos I train with a guy who went through that year's Senshusei course with him. He didn't think much of Twigger's Aikido skills... ;-)
Another good Yosh book is Aikido Shugyo, by Gozo Shioda. Lots of insights & some pretty good stories of strife & mayhem as well.
