Although Aikido is often thought of as a non-violent, non-competitive martial art, the use of weapons was introduced by its founder, Morihei Ueshiba. In fact, aikido techniques that use wooden weapons can enrich all aspects of your practice, helping you to understand both basic and advanced aikido technical tactics as well as conceptual strategies and skills. Building on the authors' belief that no empty hand system is complete without weapons training, 'Aikido Weapons Techniques' demonstrates weapon-use both as a training tool to better illustrate aikido principles, and as a self-defense against weapon attacks. Aikido Weapons Techniques focuses on the three primary weapons used in aikido: Ken (wooden sword), Jo (wooden staff) and Tanto (wooden knife). A complete discussion of each weapon is included, with descriptions of the stances, grips, techniques, defenses, forms, and training appropriate for each. Phong Thong Dang holds a sixth degree black belt in aikido, a sixth degree black belt in tae kwon do, a fifth degree black belt in judo, and an eighth degree black belt in Vietnamese Shaolin kung fu. The World Martial Arts Hall of Fame inducted Phong twice: once for his expertise in aikido and again for his lifelong dedication to the martial arts. He has been featured in Karate Illustrated, Aikido journal, Aikido Today magazine, Martial Arts and Combat Sports, and Black Belt. He has practiced martial arts for over fifty years and currently teaches in southern California. Lynn Seiser is an internationally respected psychotherapist, consultant, and trainer. Seiser has over three decades of martial arts training and experience. He currently holds the rank of Sandan (third degree black belt) in Tenshinkai aikido under Sensei Phong Thong Dang.
