I am in need of Volumes 1 & 2 of the Traditional Aikido series.. I just purchased Volumes 3, 4, and 5 and would like the entire set. Anyone out there know of a place to go to find these two books?

Thanks in advance,
Justin Campbell

Your appraoch of posting your search on the discussion forum is most likely to yield results. I would also post this at http://www.aikiweb.com and http://www.aikidojournal.com

If that doesn't pan out try finding a book dealer that specializes in finding used and hard to find books. They can do computer seraches that might find something for you. Even Amazon does searches for out of print books.

I have the volumes of which you speak myself but am not willing to part with them, sorry.

I wasn't able to find the books until I went to Japan and purchased them at Kinokuniya. There are several Kinokunia branches here in the US so you might call one of them to see if they have the books in stock or order them for you.

Unfortunately, I too am unwilling to part with mine.

Best of luck,
