Aikido Goshinkai Basic Principles Handbook – After 3 years and 34 original drafts and 69 draft with the desktop publishing software, we are so happy to publish this guide by Michael Williams Sensei. This guide will be an enormous help to to students and instructors. I hope you all enjoy this guide as I did working on it. To all the people that helped along the way I would like to thank you for your help.

The Aikido book has taken a little longer than expected as extra content has been added. The guide has 226 pages (The last red guide third edition was 145 pages). We thank you all for your patience and support.
