We have many hours of nostalgic video footage featuring Senta Yamada Sensei.  This will slowly be made available on DVD.

 

DVD 01 - THE LINK BETWEEN AIKIDO AND JUDO SEMINAR

Footage taken at the London Judo Society Dojo on 23rd March, 1991.  Yamada Sensei first taught in London in 1959, that Dojo moved to the Dojo featured in this footage. This Dojo also no longer exists.

At this seminar there were many enthusiastic, some prominent, practitioners of both disciplines.  These include Syd Hoare, John Waite, Paul Wildish, Robert Austin, Wendy Maynard.

Copies of the DVD are available via this website by completing the downloadable order form.

 

 

 

PUB01 - THE ANCIENT SECRETS OF AIKIDO by SENTA YAMADA

This book contains everything an enthusiastic Aikidoka needs to know to guide them along the difficult path they have chosen.AIKIDO AID - THE ANCIENT SECRETS OF AIKIDO by SENTA YAMADA

It is a book not full of complicated techniques.  It is a book not full of mystery and jargon.  It is a book that emphasizes the necessity to study and understand the basics and in this it unlocks the clandestine aura which surrounds  the art of Aikido.  The book is a valuable addition to any Aikidoka collection and it cements the roots of the Tomiki system.  It includes the Foot & Hand movements, the Five Basic Hand-blade exercises and the Basic Fifteen.

Sales of the book so far have helped establish Aikido in Sri Lanka and give aid to “2004 Japan Tsunami”.

PUB03 - AIKIDO A DIALOGUE OF MOVEMENT Vol. 1. For Beginners

Author:           John A W Wilkinson
Assisted by:    Jim Elkin,  Robert Forrest-Webb,  R C Maddock
Foreword by:  Professor J E Kane, St Mary's College, Twickenham

AIKIDO A DIALOGUE OF MOVEMENT by JOHN WILKINSON

 I became impressed with Aikido as a sport and as an educational method during the period of the 1964 Olympiad in Tokyo. It was at this time that I was fortunate to have the opportunity of seeing the teaching methods of Professor Tomiki at Waseda University. Even with the language difficulty it was impossible not to understand the enthusiasm, logic and planning that was basic to his teaching of Aikido. Now the sport is developing in this country thanks to the efforts of a number of inspired teachers. It is truly a sport for all men and women of all ages and makes serious mental demands on the individual as well as giving remarkable opportunities for the development of physical versatility. The perception and sensitive interpretation that is required between the two players in Aikido makes the sport in essence a dialogue in movement. As such it would seem to have a great deal to offer not only to discriminating adults but also within the programme of general education for school children. 

The authors with a wide range of experience in the teaching of adults and children are ideally suited to present this important contribution to the development of aikido in this country.
