Aikido Exercises for Teaching and Training PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Aikido Exercises for Teaching and Training free pdf Aikido, 'the way of harmony', is a martial art developed as a form of self-defence that would simultaneously protect one's attacker from injury. Aikido, like its predecessor Jujutsu, focuses on subduing and controlling rather than damaging and destroying, locks and throws rather than kicks and punches. The Aikidoist does not resist attacks, but rather blends with them to redirect and transform the attacker's energy. The exercises contained in "Aikido Exercises for Teaching and Training" are based on hitori-waza, the simple building blocks that underlie the most spectacular Aikido throws. These are augmented with testing techniques, class demonstrations, and underlying basics of physics, anatomy, and psychology.The book includes information for beginners, common questions, an explanation of the relationships between exercises and throws, an approach for safe mastery of rolling and ukemi skills, the anatomy of wristlocks, useful training equipment, exercises for individual, off-mat practice, verbal self-defence techniques, and much more. Unlike most Aikido manuals, "Aikido Exercises for Teaching and Training" draws from many topics to enrich the student's understanding of the underlying principles of Aikido. Author C.M. Schifflet uses a wide range of real-life situations, literary works, and pop culture references to teach the primary lessons of Aikido.
