Summary and Info
C.M. Shifflett's "Aikido for Teaching and Training," is a thoughfully crafted handbook that should benefit any Aikido practicioner. I myself am primarily a Shaolin Kung Fu stylist, however, I was honored to have studied with Shihan Paul Silvaine of Valley Aikido in Northhampton Massachusetts between 1985 and 1989. The Aikido that he taught me was inspiring to say the least, and its circular nature blends perfectly with both Kung Fu and Tai Chi methodology. This book has helped me to rekindle his teachings, and allowed me to resume practice in Aikido. There is an amazing abundance of information within this book, and several readings will most likely be necessary to glean all of the treasure locked within its pages. The illustrations are adequate, but in some cases, I thought that a few more photos would have been appropriate. I agree with some of the other posters that the testimonials were often both humorous and fitting, but at times I found them excessive, and anxiously read on for more of the Author's expert instruction. Keep up the good work! Two thumbs up!Sincerely,Erik D.J. O'BrienThe Drums of Doom: Part 2 of The Duaredheim Staff Saga
