Aikido Beginners

Very often, after a couple of beginners workouts begin to ask the question – what would I advise them to read on Aikido? In fact, I would not recommend beginners to read anything related to Aikido in general! It's more harm than good. For First, it is enough that the instructor says. Indeed, in most editions of Aikido is not made in the general principles of this art, but only certain aspects of the individual styles of names that may be not indicated. Particularly wary of books written by the British and Americans, they even have distorted notions distort so that raskukozhit then will not work. The only thing that could read these books – the poor guy to introduce a newcomer to misleading, because the instructor says one thing and the book is written just the opposite. And if you buy, for example the five books of different authors, there surely will be a lot of contradictions. And if a student comes to do is read a book, it's generally a bad case. He will still ask after class, they say, you say so and so, as the book is written like this and like that.

But is it worth arguing? Book, in fact all the same trust as something more than words … What it appears that one can not read the book? Yes you can, just do not take seriously what is written in them, or better yet, give this book first to see your instructor. But even if the book is very well and good, still on first, it is not worth much to get involved. The practice should not be in the background, otherwise you can become a master theorist, who knows everything and does not know how little but how to find the truth a purely theoretical way. To begin with, better a couple of years having been occupied by an instructor, to visit a couple of international seminars. This will create in your mind an experience and understanding on the basis of which you can search for books confirmation of their theories and hypotheses. And what books to read better, and you yourself become a good deal. Discuss
