One of the most comprehensive publications on the Shodokan system of Aikido that I have ever read.

Simple, concise explanations of everything from basic exercises, ukemi and the aikido principles as seen from the perspective of ju no ri. A great qualification and explanation of the reasoning behind Tomiki's randori system, and how competition does fall within Aikido's principles of love and harmony.

Scott even goes through explanations of the different balance breaks, applications, counters and gives some insight into the Shodokan grading syllabus.

I recommend this book for all Aikidoka out there, especially those interested in applying their techniques in a fast paced, environment, where a resistant uke is stalking you with a tanto and not pulling any punches.

The reason for the four rating is because I think it can do with some more pictures and illustrations to give better detail to some of the explanations.

But a great book all in all.

An excellent reference and definitely worth the asking price.

It is somewhat wordy at times, however I'd guess that this is only in an attempt to explain things in a definitive and complete manner.

The book takes you solidly through the basics of the shodokan system, but does not go through blow-by-blow descriptions of the various kata. Instead the fundamentals of the kihon waza are covered nicely, as well as some good narrative regarding randori practice.

Shodokan books are few and far between and I am sure that the reader will get something out of this book.

Buy it.
