Morihiro Saito - Traditional Aikido

Hi There,

I've been looking for Saito Sensei's books on the internet. I'm looking for Traditional Aikido - Vol. 1-5 and Takemusu Aidido - Vol. 1-5.

They seem to be out of print. Does anyone know if I can get them somewhere?

TIA,

Robin van der Harst

Traditional Aikido is out of print and has been for years. Good luck finding a set. Keep you eyes open on e-bay and the rare book sites and be prepared to set down your satchel to buy them.

Takemusu Aikido, except for the first volume should be available through http://www.aikidojournal.com/ . The first volume is available, but I believe only in all-Nihongo.

Regards,

Greg Jennings

Robin,

If it is any help, go to www.barnesandnoble.com, and click the "used" book tab. They're showing two used books in stock at this moment. Good luck!

Okay Thanks...

I didn't know Traditional Aikido was out of print for years.

Greg, sorry, but what is all-nihongo?

Thanks Chris, I will check it out...

Robin

Written in Japanese language(Nihongo) only.

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"

Yes, I have seen the prices, and they are more than I like to spend on any publication. However, I was just trying to help Robin out in the only way I knew. I'll let him decide how he wishes to spend his money.

With best regards,

Chris

I've seen the prices too, and it wasn't really what I was planning to spend!

I talked to my teacher and he has the complete set and was happy to lend it to me, so I guess that'll have to do.

But thanks anyway...

There's a guy over on Aikido Journal who has a complete set for sale signed by Saito Sensei.
