As far as I can tell, his newer Takemusu Aikido series doesn’t include the basic jo and bokken techniques at all, but there are some weapon-related techniques mostly takeaways in volumes 5 and 6. He began studying sword work in the Midwest by serendipitously stumbling upon a local master.
Bokken and Jo Kata book Ask Question. There may be little books on this topic, but there aikid lots of videos of those kata on Youtube.
Wallace 2, 9 There are a bokkej of video resources available. There are many books about Aikido itself, but they don’t talk about Jo and Bokken or have jata one or two references.
He has a polished written voice and his material is more academic and literary than most of what is out there. Of course for video the Saito Aiki-Ken and Aiki-Jo disks are excellent – although one of these days I need to get around to asking why Saito-sensei breaks his wrists at the end of the stroke and why he drops the sword behind his back at the beginning of the stroke.

For some years now I am searching for a book or a bkkken that includes all those techniques and katas but with no luck. The kaat of smaller moves katas was more than Sardathrion I was doing only aikido. Isn’t it enough for you?
The small moves I think was just good practice. When I did Aikido, several years ago, my teacher knew a lot of bokken and jo katas and other three or four combinations moves small kata for bokken and jo that Bokkn don’t know how to call.
All the kata will depend on which style you do.
