A Martial Path
The Founder of Aikido is Morihei Ueshiba Osensei.
The martial discipline of Aikido was developed, refined and so named through our Founder's rigorous daily practice and continuous study of numerous classical Japanese budo and shugyo.
With no contests or matches of skill, size or strength, no winner or loser, the concepts and practical applications of Aikido are practiced and developed mindfully following our Founder’s philosophy and practice methodology.
One must diligently practice Aikiken, Aikijo and Aikijutsu to develop a strong foundation and martial skill.
Upon applying the proper mindset, methods and discipline to rigorous training, one prepares mentally and physically where the sincerity of training in any circumstance may be put to the test.
Unlimited potential awaits one who follows this path.
