My first suggestion is to ask your Sensei. Your Sensei will be your best source of information for your particular style of Aikido.
You can also find other resources on the Internet like video clips. Here is a link to our style of Aikido.Shin Budo Kai Techniques

Re: How you did this techniques

You will need to go beyond the book and find a real dojo with a real teacher.

Excellent advice Mark. I can not begin to imagine trying to learn techniques from a book. So many times I'm struggling with a technique and sensei will say move your hand(s) to here and apply pressure in this direction and see what happens. It may be an adjustment of 1/4 inch or less but can can make so much difference. Those are things pictures just can't convey.

Harmony does not mean that there are no conflicts,
for the dynamic spiral of existence embraces both extremes.

I too have always wondered why there are so many books out there with strings of photo's showing thechniques being applied. I totally agree with you Michael, how can anyone learn like this?

Spend the money you save from not buying 'pointless' books on mat fees, this is much better use of your hard earned dosh.

cheers,
Mark

Re: How you did this techniques

I am WAY too stupid to learn from a book. The higher in rank I go, the more I need to see the technique performed from various angles and to have my instructor actually position my hands, etc.

It would be like learning to drive from a drivers education book when you've never even seen a car.

I use my books more as very nice notes with pictures. I dont have them to learn from, rather to use as a help to remember details and variations I already should know.

Re: How you did this techniques

I've learned an extraordinary amount from books...Probably just as much as I've learned in the dojo.

When I first began, the strings of pictures were excellent reminders for my at-home practice.

When I got further along, the tips helped distill my technique (not that it's great or anything, but it's definitely improved with the tips).

Now, whatever level I'm at, I can look at a string of pictures and interpret the mechanics of techniques--including those of other arts.

I'd recommend that the poster stick with his/her book until a dojo's available. Of what I've experienced, 90% of Aikido is practicing. The rest comes from your instructors.

I've found books to be extremely rewarding to my practice--with or without an instructor.

On the questions posted, I'd say pick up a copy of "Total Aikido: The Master Course." It gave me direction beyond my wildest dreams!!!
