From Preface:

I have been planning to publish a volume dealing with kokyunage for some time. Kokyunage are the most numerous and important techniques in aikido, hence my decision to devote an entire volume to the subject. If kokyunage techniques were to be removed from the art, it would no longer be worthy of being called aikido. — Morihiro Saito

Reviews

I ordered this book and have found it to be a great reinforcement to the training received at class. I recommend this book to anyone who is considering purchasing it. The photos are clear and from excellent angles that show the techniques very well. The explanations that go with the photos are also very helpful. The book is a great companion to Saito Sensei’s Lost Seminars DVD set.

“These manuals are invaluable tools for people like me. If Saito Sensei had been of the “old style” mindset, this might never have happened. These books have benefited me more than any other single publication on aikido technique, or any resource outside of dojo practice under a competent teacher.”
