Ships in 3-5 business days
Aikido, Keri-waza deals with a subject which is not commonplace in most aikido dojo's; defensive techniques against kicks. This book aims at providing a basis of training in Keri-waza. Not only an explanation of techniques but also explaining how training can be structured to enable educational, safe and fun practice. Keri-waza will not only broaden the view of any aikidoka upon this great art, but can provide a starting point for the exploration of the exciting world of kicks. Training in these forms teaches aikidoka a new form of flexibility, endurance, limberness, balance, martial sense and movement.
The book includes a brief historical overview of martial arts relevant to this field of study, a theoretical and technical introduction into training Keri-waza and includes a detailed explanation (with full-colour photographs) of 42 techniques to Mae-geri (forward kick) and Mawashi-geri (roundhouse kick).
140 full-colour pages including almost 400 foto's.
