It is this system of Tomiki Aikido which is explained and demonstrated here. Mr Yamada understands my methods thoroughly and is able to teach them well. It is therefore with pleasure that I recommend this book to the many people who are interested in the study of aikido.” See Oxfam website for delivery information
