Abstract | Contents
While studying aikido at varioius aikido schools, I found that many of the techniques would differ from school to school. I created this guide to help illustrate to myself how and why these differences occurred, and to help myself in internalizing my own aikido practice. Often after class I would take time to review the techniques by writing down which techniques were taught during class, and sketching them from memory later. Now I often refer to this guide to review the various techniqes and visualize how to do them before class. I sincerely hope this will help you in your aikido development.
