This is a fairly detailed guide for the beginner, and as such includes chapters on history, philosophy, styles, clothing, safety, waza basics, physical and mental training, and advancement. The authors state “Because aikido is made up of these two distinct elements – the technique and the spirit – people are often drawn to one aspect of the art more than the other….What one discovers after dedicated practice is that these two seemingly separate elements are really interconnected, so that the spirit is discovered through practice of technique, and the technique is improved when the spirit is embraced.”
