A new review has been posted in the AikiWeb Book database:
Book Title: Aikido: Exercises for Teaching and Training
Book Author: Shifflett, C M

Review author: Gary Madore
Rating given: 5 (out of 5)

This is the first book for which I've been moved to write a review.

I found Shifflett's work to be the very first successful 'all-in-one' books ever written for the martial ways. In it she presents valuable information for both the beginner and the beginning instructor. In fact, when one considers that even seasoned instructors may need reminding of that which is important to the beginner, this book indeed has something for all of us.

"Aikido: Exercises for Teaching and Training" presents the reader with answers to frequently asked questions, physics lessons, myth-busting, some "how-to", and even some Aikido for everyday life. This information is drawn from many styles and so some may find some concepts foreign (Ki Testing, for example) but that is part of the beauty: It's non partisan, plain ol' Aikido, and it's presented in an easy to read, light-hearted manner.

Interspersed among the pearls of Shifflet's aiki-wisdom I found many contributions from the denziens of the Aikido-L mailing list, a veritable who's-who of Aikido knowledge. These quips and quotes are worth the cover price themselves.

I unreservedly recommend this book both as an invaluable aid for the beginner and as a worthwhile addition to anybody's Aikido library. It has earned a permanent place in my bedside table.
