Academic research in to Aikido pedagogy

I'm working on my B.Ed. in Post-Secondary Education, and it's occurred to me that it might be interesting to research the various approaches used in teaching Aikido, and what seems to be broadly effective. I've found a couple of papers, but not much. Is anyone already working on this research?

Re: Academic research in to Aikido pedagogy

Are you limting yourself to English language research? If not there are quite a few out there in Japanese. Papers and research both by and on Kenji Tomiki and his methods abound. I'm not a Tomiki practioner but I'm certain one could point you in the right direction.

You could also try contacting Waseda University ?(Tomiki's Uni.) as well, they probably have some extracts in English. That's all I've got off the top of my head. Hope that helps.

Re: Academic research in to Aikido pedagogy

Thanks Scott! For the moment, I'm limited to English, since my Japanese is very limited.

Re: Academic research in to Aikido pedagogy

One more I came across and thought I'd toss out there, though I can't vouch for the school or their programs, is the Kokusai Budou Daigaku (International Budo University).
http://www.budo-u.ac.jp/english/e10_...ory/index.html

From their page above: "The Budo and Sports Research Institute is dedicated to increasing the current body of Budo-related articles, books, and scholarship available in English.Please follow the link to more information about the Institute's publications as well as some downloadable English-language articles."

At the very least you might make some fun contacts.

This one I've found is about different teaching methods (for children):

Maybe there is something useful for you.

Re: Academic research in to Aikido pedagogy

On a different note I would look at the latest work from Kolb regarding his learning circle for inspiration. And some of the work of William Rankin could also be relevant.

I have been wanting to do something about this so will look forward to your results.

If you are interested in the really tough area of learning through sensing bodily input you could take a look at this lady who is also a 2. Dan aikido practitioner herself : http://findresearcher.sdu.dk/portal/...lications.html

Re: Academic research in to Aikido pedagogy

Thanks! Not sure when I'll actually get to this research, right now it's just an idea rolling around in my head.
