Comparative Aiki in ActionComparative Aiki in Action

What would it be like if you had a repertoire of aiki techniques that multiplied yourcurrent knowledge exponentially? Whydoes each style claim to have "the right way" but no style does it the same way? What is the difference between dojo "exercise" technique and functional "street" technique? Does one lead to the other? If you are interested in expanding your aiki knowledge, you have picked the right book. Over 10 years in the writing with over 700 studio photographs by Toby Threadgill. Hanshi Tony Annesi offers his overview of the methods most common among aiki styles — and the comparative value of each so you can grow exponentially!
