Japanese Aikido Glossary
The AKI Japanese Aikido Glossary was first published in 2005 and comprises over three years of first hand experience and study with Takeda Shihan at the AKI Honbu Dojo in Japan. It has been revised and expanded to include over 400 of the most common words and phrases in use, equipping you with the key adverbs, verbs and nouns you’re likely to encounter whilst training in Japan, or when attending seminars with Japanese teachers. These are presented in kanji (Chinese characters), hiragana (Japanese phonetic syllables) and romaji (English text). The glossary includes a pronunciation guide, a fast-find index to look up terms as you hear them, and a selection of quality black-and-white and full-colour images depicting the beauty of Japan’s very distinct four seasons.
