I have recently compiled a notebook and manual for Aiki Jo practice.  It is a compilation of the material that appears on my blog, with additional notes.  The contents are 20 Jo Suburi, 31 Jo Kata, 31 Kumijo, 13 Jo Kata, 13 Jo Awase, Kumijo 1-10, Jo Dori. Jo Dori Kaeshi Waza, and Jo Nage. These are a draft copy of a .pdf document that I am making with illustrative photos and embedded video demonstration.  If you want a free copy of the current notebook, you only have to do two things:

  1. Email me at autrelle at gmail dot com so that I can send the file to you
  2. Post a comment here in the form of feedback on my blog

Thanks to you all.
