This book, an in-depth look at Ellis Schools of Tradtional Aikido's special brand of technique, strategy, philosophy as well as unique history, has taken about 15 years to compile, but will soon be offered in print byrepparttar 144924 world's leading publisher of martial arts material.

Trafford Holdings Ltd; is a privately-held corporation, registered in British Columbia, Canada. There are over 120 shareholders, including many authors and allrepparttar 144925 permanent employees. It was incorporated in 1991. In late 1995, Trafford opened it's doors and website. They arerepparttar 144926 first company inrepparttar 144927 world to offer an "on-demand publishing service," and they arerepparttar 144928 best.

The production of Positive Aikido has gone through numerous stages. The hand-drawings describing each ofrepparttar 144929 positive techniques in traditional Aikido were begun in 1987 withrepparttar 144930 intention of providing new students with a reference guide - atrepparttar 144931 time to be photocopied for students inrepparttar 144932 USA and later possibly forrepparttar 144933 UK students as well. That plan however, never took hold as more and more drawings were produced. The drawings ofrepparttar 144934 first four groupings were finished in 1991 and in 1993,repparttar 144935 second four groupings were added, along with some transcripts from a recorded conversation between Sensei Ellis and Rogers on a long roadtrip between Dallas, Texas and Alamogordo, New Mexico. Rogers made his 1st Dan during that trip, and Positive Aikido picked up a lot of its histories and background information. Still, it was no more than a bunch of papers cobbled together from various sources.

In 1999 however, withrepparttar 144936 advent of digital photography, Sensei Rogers decided to augmentrepparttar 144937 drawings with some digital photos and possibly put together a proper booklet for students in allrepparttar 144938 Ellis Schools. The photos however, required some supporting text - and there was a lot of other material which needed to be conveyed as well. The transcripts were re-written and cleaned up andrepparttar 144939 photos were digitally processed forrepparttar 144940 first four forms. During another visit to New Mexico, Sensei and his assistant Anita Wilson along with Sensei's son performedrepparttar 144941 demonstrations needed forrepparttar 144942 last four forms. Later,repparttar 144943 first four forms were re-shot with Sensei Rogers and one of his first USA students, Jeff Glaze of New Mexico. By this time, Positive Aikido was being developed as a book.

The Power Of Combining Golf Swing Basics With Exercise

Written by Mike Pedersen

When training in good golf swing basics is combined withrepparttar right exercise program,repparttar 144828 results can be nothing short of miraculous.

Takerepparttar 144829 superb performances witnessed in junior golfers likerepparttar 144830 Song sisters, Ty Tyron and Michelle Wie. The amazingly high level of performance of these very young junior golfers has often been discussed. Several theories and reasons have been brought forward. Most of them are not true. For example a common belief is that these younger golfers perform better and respond better to golf swing basics taught because of their flexibility. This is absolutely NOT TRUE.

The difference between junior golfers and adults is usually strength and not flexibility. I have personally worked with hundreds of junior golfers and I have watched in amazement as a very short period of time of doing strength exercises has yielded increases in their golf drives of as much as a whole 50 yards.
