Re: Discovering Aikido -- Book Online

Well, I finally got around to updating my website. The publisher failed to return one set of pics so I scanned the missing ones from a copy of the book. Not brilliant, but it seems to work. It is not really a picture book though. I have also altered bits here and there and added some parts as the book was written over ten years ago and some of my ideas have changed a little. When I get more time I will write a lot more ...

I hope people like it :-)

Re: Discovering Aikido -- Book Online

I have spent the last year and a half in South Korea. Spent another year in Japan before that. I work at Yongin University which is famous for its martial arts programmes and have had the chance to meet all sorts of interesting people (main Karate guys in Korea / wrestlers / Hapkido / several teachers of Chinese arts from China / Aunkai / JKD / students / others). Some of my old Aikido students (from when I lived here before) have moved on tremendously and all offer good insight. Also spent a couple of weeks discussing stuff with a Jujutsu friend in NZ and so ... I have spent a bit of time updating stuff/ideas on my website. Nothing much - just bits here and there. Most people would not notice I guess. Sometimes I think I should delete stuff because I have moved on but I usually leave it as it might provide a way for others who are starting out. Anyway - Update 2016 done.

Re: Discovering Aikido -- Book Online

I have had a bit of time on my hands of late so have updated a few more areas on my book website. Again, nothing major ... just updating this and that and correcting the odd typo. I am back in NZ for now.

Re: Discovering Aikido -- Book Online

I just found a link to some old videos of me and a couple of friends from Korea - year 2000. I was looking for my old Jo-trick video but found this instead. A bit of Aikido, Jujutsu, Kyushin, and Takeda-ryu - pretty random. The vids are a bit short and jerky - they were made with the one of the first digital cameras - not a lot of memory so kept it short etc.

Re: Discovering Aikido -- Book Online

Have you considered converting this to ebook/kindle and making it available on Amazon (and other places)? This could be done very easily. I have worked in publishing many years and have experience with this. Contact me if interested.

I have thought about it - but just too busy with too many things going on.

PM sent :-)
