Aikido Ground Fighting presents effective ground techniques that remain true to aikido founder Morehei Ueshiba’s teachings even as addressing a potential weakness in the system: even as aikido is renowned for its submission and compliance techniques in addition to grappling from a standing position, it’s not known for its effectiveness relating to ground fighting. Aikido Ground Fighting is a unique look at the roots of aikido techniques (in particular, the kneeling practices of suwari-waza) and how they may well be applied to defense on the ground. Written by an immediate student of Morihei Ueshiba in collaboration with other aikido teachers, this book remains steadfastly true to the founder’s teachings even as presenting innovative and effective techniques. Containing never-before-published pictures of Ueshiba in addition to step by step photographs clearly demonstrating techniques, Aikido Ground Fighting is designed for aikido students taking a look to grow to be more well-rounded martial artists in addition to practitioners of all martial arts in search of effective self-defense techniques.
