Aikibatto is a system of sword and staff exercises for aikido students, as well as for anyone interested in the Japanese martial arts. This book presents the principles and basics of the sophisticated sword arts developed by the Japanese warrior aristocracy, the samurai.

Although the aikibatto exercises are primarily developed for aikido students, they contain much of the normal curriculum of traditional iaido and kenjutsu. Anyone interested in the arts of the katana, the formidable Japanese sword, will find much of value in this book.

In addition to extensive explanations of the ken, sword, and jo, stick, exercises, the book contains an introduction to the Japanese sword arts, their components, and their equipment. There is also a dictionary of sword art terminology.
