Traditional Aikido volume 2 covers a very wide range of weapon techniques and methods. It continues on the weapon basic where volume 1 finished and shows more advanced weapon techniques. And, if the Aikidoka has done its homework from the first volume, the techniques in Traditional Aikido volume 2 will come as a natural extension of their bodies - or Ken and Jo as the case is in the second volume!

Traditional Aikido volume 2 is the largest and the five volumes and has 180 pages of information. It shows the fundamental parts of the advanced techniques and encourages the read to develop new techniques in the different chapters, thus, Morihiro Saito Sensei shows the way for the trainer to develop and achieve with the Aiki principle – the way to Takemusu Aiki. Or as Morihiro Saito Sensei writes in the foreword from 1973;

In Aikido, the kumitachi contain body movements according to the principles of Aiki. It is possible at any time during the kumitachi to change to taijutsu. The same truth holds for the kumijo. However, it will be difficult to switch to taijutsu, if one is dependent on upon Jo or Ken. Therefore, for easier understanding the explanations have been made by use of detailed photographs. If the aim of the reader is to instruct Aikido, then this book should be considered necessary.

I sincerely hope that the first volume, this book, and the third intended volume will help the reader to broaden his understanding and correctly grasp the principles of Aikido.”

Traditional Aikido volume 2 has the following quality features:

  • Hardcover with a cotton cover

  • High glossy paper

  • Thread tied spine

  • Dustcover

  • 179  pages

  • Includes over 650 pictures, many of O´sensei

Traditional Aikido volume 2 takes up the fundamental Hito e mi that’s a basic and fundamental part of Aikido, and one of the keys when it comes to the Kumitachi, Kumijo and in the Riai principle!
