What Makes Aiki Work?
The Principles of Aiki

Tired of having haphazard success with your throwing and locking? It may be because you are imitating your teacher's good form without understanding what makes that form work. Soke Don ANGIER and Shihan Tony ANNESI take Form a step further. Form, Annesi argues, is a way of "tricking" a student into doing something right. It is a classical shape that illustrates an underlying Principle. If you don't understand the principle, you'll be locked into a form without meaning. Many aiki students have good form but produce varying success in their throwing and locking. You may be one of them. By mastering the principles underlying the forms, you can find technical success even when using dramatically different techniques. Style is less important than Principle. The rational West can sometimes explain more clearly what the intuitive East has discovered. Once you know the principles on which a technique is based, you can easily make adjustments in your own methods and see validity in other methods. Experience the rush of revelation you will get once mastering TRIANGULATION, BACK PRESSURE, COMMUTIVE LOCKING and a dozen others! There has never been another video series like The Principles of Aiki! Totally unique and truly a Classic! (2 DVDs 4 hous) ASIAN MARTIAL ARTISTRY with WESTERN ANALYSIS!

I was lucky enough to see [videos] [A-] 5 & 6, the Angier/Annesi seminars.   They were better than any live seminar I've been to!   They are both great teachers.....   After 3 1/2 months I watched one of your [videos] again with entirely different eyes.   I've found that to be true of all your   [videos].   If I leave them for a few months..., when I go back to them, I notice more each time.   Some other [videos] I've sent for are hardly worth watching once.
--Frank Daniels, aikido student, Vancouver

...your explanations of concepts were concise and very clear. The substance and detail were excellent and far surpass what I've experienced in seminars, demos or on videos.
--Steve Abruzzo, Philadelphia, PA

I have been in the martial arts for 34 years and I'm not easily impressed. After reviewing and studying your videos The Principles of Aiki, I am sold!   Here we have in the space of a few hours the principles --what you need not only to do the techniques but also how to make them work on anybody! I am very particular about what videos I buy--it is my intention, over time, to purchase your entire library of information. The way you teach is excellent. You take what could be a very complicated concept and make it easy to understand and, more importantly, easy to duplicate, with a little practice. Most people teach and practice technique. You practice and teach theory and principle. You tell people how and why the techniques qork. Although you make it look like magic, once you understand how it works, one begins to belive that anyone can be the magician. I highly recommend these videos to anyone seeking knowledge and information to add to their own style or system.
