Stefan Stenudd - author, artist, aikido instructor. It's easy to forget in regular aikido training. We all know that the aikido technique is the defense, not the attack, so that's what we focus on. But without skilled attacks, the aikido defense doesn't need to be skilled, so there's a risk it will not be, no matter how much we train.

MEGA FREEDY
Stefan deals with a rarely covered topic and the topic of attacks and goes into great detail as to the mindset, techniques and the 'point' of the attack.

Often in Aikido practice, the role of the tori/nage is often neglected leading to sloppy practice and furthermore we are puzzled with the unrealistic attacks we practice against. Stefan sheds some light on the issue by explaining its origins and the energy required for each attack while remaining true to traditional Aikido attacks.

For instance some excerpts from Shomen-uchi:
Shomenuchi is a strike to the top of tori's head, with an open hand. It is done as a symbol of a sword attack. It would not make much sense to hit a person's skull with the bare hand.

Of course, the shomenuchi attack has no meaning when done with an unarmed hand. The head is hard, especially at the forehead, so there is no hand that can hit it without more damage being done to the hand than to tori's head. This is simply a way of training aikido in a safe way against the sword attack or any other armed attack to the head from above.

He also deals with the less common attacks like bear hugs (kakaedori) from behind and elaborates on the particular challenges for tori and uke on certain attacks.

In summary, this book is an excellent book for Aikido practitioners seeking to better understand their art but it may disappoint some hoping to learn 'Attack techniques' (which I would then suggest you look to another martial art) or like myself, Aikido solutions to more common street attacks. Having been in a few scuffles and training Aikido for 16-17 years or so, the attacks of uke in Aikido do little to prepare you against the fast and unpredictable nature of these attacks which usually do not stop with one or two attacks or the stress involved when you're taken out of a dojo environment. Even so, the book's contents cannot be faulted as it is simply teaching Aikido for what it is.

I would easily give this book a four stars as it does what it sets out to do well with good illustrations. The only reason I gave it a 3 stars was the Kindle version seemed to have many photos missing which detracted from my enjoyment of the book and left me feeling a bit upset since I wasn't getting the whole book.

Excellent.... I have used it many times for reference.....

Without a solid attack, much of aikido's training is not possible. Sensei Stenudd does an excellent job detailing proper training technique.

MegaStar
great book pretty informative, a most to have. Serious students to the most advance. Good book Pretty well put together.

It is a good book, but the attacks are very common, there is no new reference to those that you could find in a normal practice.

Frdi
I'm glad to see a book observing Aiki from the uke's side of the equation.
Aikido practice depends on this harmony, and the insights found here will
deepen training and understanding. I believe this information is critical in
making the shift from practice to mastery.

good product

This book pinpoint aspects of Aikido training that is in some dojos neglected, the attack and how to perform it properly. In Aikido, being a peaceful martial art, focus is on the defensive techniques how to correctly avoid and lead the "opponents" attack away. On this topic there are numerous publications, books, videos, and youtube-clips available. To my knowledge no or very few discus the attack form since that is not Aikido. But in my opinion Aikido is a relation between the the "attacker" and the "defender". In order to perform the best Aikido both partners need to be at their best. However, I actually didn't realise that I missed a book on this topic before it landed in my mail box!

In a clear, concise and well structured way Stefan guide us through all common attack forms practiced in Aikido dojos, grips, strikes, kicks, and weapon attacks. The book is filled with detailed descriptions on how to perform the attacks, together with discussions on the origin and purpose of the attack with reference to other martial arts (e.g. kendo, karate). The thorough descriptions are accompanied by plenty of photo illustrations which ads on to the clarity and the understanding.

Independent on Aikido style, this book should be in the reference libary in any Aikido dojo.

If I was required to propose improvements to this book I would only have one, print it on glossy paper ;-)
