Aikido Ground Fighting Description

'On the back' of Aikido Ground Fighting

Aikido Ground Fighting is a unique look at the roots of Aikido and a provocative glimpse into its future, exploring how traditional standing techniques can be adapted and used when the fight goes to the ground.

Written by Walther von Krenner—who trained at Honbu Dojo under Aikido founder Ueshiba Morihei-along with Aikido instructors Damon Apodaca and Ken Jeremiah, this book remains steadfastly true to the founder's teachings while presenting innovative applications for ground fighting, a practice often omitted from modern Aikido training. Beginning with a thorough investigation into the pillars and principles of traditional Aikido, the authors address the history of suwar-waza or kneeling practices, which are then used as the basis for further ground techniques. With never-before-published pictures of Ueshiba as well as step-by-step photographs clearly demonstrating techniques, Aikido Ground Fighting is an essential book for any student of Aikido and a useful supplement for martial artists of other disciplines looking to enhance their training.

"The writings and research of Mr. von Krenner, Mr. Apodaca, and Dr. Jeremiah représent a holistic approach to Aikido in order to challenge the thinking and conventions of modern aikidoka. Their hypothesis regarding the evolution or possible entropy of today's approach to Aikido's seated techniques is sure to inspire-or perhaps provoke—a conversation that will hopefully continue beyond the current generation of practitioners."
— from the foreword by Carl E. Long, vice chairman of the Kokusai Nippon Budo Kyokai/Jikishin-Kai International Kenshoin, Dai Nippon Butoku Kai
