Aikido is a Japanese martial art based on the principles of harmony. The principles and techniques of aikido are designed to bring one into alignment with an aggressive attack in order to join with, and resolved the conflict.
iBudokan’s Aikido-Intermediate 1 App features 26 intermediate level techniques professionally filmed in over 150 detailed video clips. Each technique in the series is presented from 6 different views including:
Training with iBudokan’s Aikido App with the various points of view allows the Aikido student a full range of technical instruction from Miles Kessler Sensei (5th dan Aikikai). It is the ideal training supplement for beginner's and advanced practitioners to receive the highest level of instruction at the touch of a finger. iBudokan's Aikido application for iPod and iPad is the best Aikido training App on the market.
iBudokan's Aikido series is offered in 6 applications; Basics 1 & 2, Intermediate 1 & 2, and Advanced 1 & 2. The whole series can be found in the “Aikido_All“ application.

Ratings and Reviews
The interface and design of app is nice, simple and easy to use. The demonstrations and quality of the movie clips are excellent, informative and educational. Nicely done.
Impressive and helpful
Kessler Sensei has combined a smart and simple interface with an impressive collection of video clips featuring very cleanly demonstrated Aikido techniques. The multiple views of each technique available on the iPad are particularly useful, and I can imagine this app becoming the best possible off-mat way for students - particularly those who struggle to link each technique's Japanese name and the correct movements together in their heads - to prepare for tests and review material. Not a replacement for actual training of course, but a great supplement, and also a potentially compelling teaching aid when all six planned chapters are assembled together.
Useful Aikido Reference
Got the basic app, and it was an interesting reference tool that opens the iPads potential as a martial arts manual...and you cant beat the price. Good into, would like to see more realistic attacks, maybe some munetsuki (has anyone bought the paid apps, do they include more attacks? Weapons techniques or defenses.)
Am seriously thinking of purchasing the additional apps.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
