By C. M. Shifflett

C.M. Shifflett's "Aikido for educating and Training," is a thoughfully crafted instruction manual that are meant to profit any Aikido practicioner. i actually am basically a Shaolin Kung Fu stylist, besides the fact that, i used to be commemorated to have studied with Shihan Paul Silvaine of Valley Aikido in Northhampton Massachusetts among 1985 and 1989. The Aikido that he taught me used to be inspiring to claim the least, and its round nature blends completely with either Kung Fu and Tai Chi technique. This e-book has helped me to re-light his teachings, and allowed me to renew perform in Aikido. there's an grand abundance of knowledge inside of this e-book, and several other readings will probably be essential to glean the entire treasure locked inside of its pages. The illustrations are enough, yet at times, i assumed few extra photographs may were applicable. I trust many of the different posters that the testimonials have been frequently either funny and becoming, yet from time to time i discovered them over the top, and anxiously learn on for extra of the Author's professional guideline. sustain the nice paintings! thumbs up!Sincerely,Erik D.J.
