Rare imported book on Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu.
English & Japanese language.
I purchased The Secrets of Daito Ryu Aiki Book by Kazuoki Sogawa in the hopes of gaining more insight into the wide and wonderful world that is Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu. The book is purported to be Japanese-English. While it is true that the book is both Japanese and English, the heft of the Japanese material is untranslated, with the English being set aside for the explanation of techniques, while the Japanese material is set aside for discussion of technical details of the techniques shown in bilingual fashion. At certain parts the English is flawed, but all that is made up with the excellently detailed photos, and numerous amount of techniques offered up for instruction. I recommend this book to any aficionados of DRAJJ, as it has much to offer.
