These book volumes were written from 1973 - 75 by the late Morihiro Saito Shihan and they are among the most important documents ever written in Aikido. They are a cultural treasure and a true legacy in the Aikido world and they should have a given place in any Aikidokas book shelf.

The Traditional Aikido volume 1 - 5 cover a wide range of techniques so you can understand the way to achieve Takemusu Aiki, and these techniques describe and illustrate how Ken, Jo and Tai-jutsu integrate so they can become one system – one principle.

  • Hardcover edition
  • Cotton cover
  • High glossy paper
  • Thread tied spine
  • Dustcover
  • 134 pages
  • Includes over 600 pictures
Traditional Aikido volume 1 is the first volume in a series of five. Four years after the founder passed away, Saito Morihiro Shihan laid the foundation of his systematic approach to the art. The book contains the basic moves for training with sword, empty hands and staff, presenting Aikido as a combined system (Riai), or as Morihiro Saito Shihan´s writes in the foreword of Traditional Aikido volume 1:
“This book intends to explain the fundamental relationships between the use of ken, jo and taijutsu. It was written with the consideration that it should be used for actual practice. For this reason, there are many photographs to be used for reference and understanding of the techniques. Some explanation about the form of the technique and necessary mental attitude has been used to augment the photographs.

A thorough understanding of basic techniques in use of ken, jo and taijutsu is necessary when dealing with many opponents. To stress this point, single movements of the basic Aikido exercises of tai-no-henko, and kokyu-dosa are explained. Therefore, the reader should pay particular attention to these basic exercises, since they are the basic of all Aikido movements.”

Hundreds of technical photos illustrate the text, complemented by a number of historical photos of the founder and then the second Doshu Kisshomaru as well as shots of training scenes in Iwama.
