Some practice aikido to attain a spiritual balance. Others find that the practice of aikido develops confidence and discipline. Still others may focus entirely on the physical benefits-increased stamina, strength, flexibility, and self-defense skills.>Aikido Techniques & Tactics> will help students, regardless of their system or background, to learn and use aikido techniques more effectively in real self-defense situations. Each technique is carefully described with illustrations and sequential photos. The tactical tips and specific instructions for practice will help readers to master these techniques, not just as exercises, but as effective tools for self-defense.
