The article of Doshu Moriteru Ueshiba


The following translation is an excerpt from an article of AIKIDO SHIMBUN; the official newsletter of Hombu Dojo. The article titled "To the spirit of the past doshu" was written by Moriteru Ueshiba dojo-cho for the January 20th 1999 edition of Aikido Shimbun

"The techniques and way of Aikido that the founder O-Sensei left us, was not always easily understood by everyone. Doshu, my father, changed these so they would be easily understood, and he gave all of his life to spread this. For that reason he left behind many books that he had written. I grew up watching Doshu return from keiko to study and write for long hours and even with my child's eyes I could see the importance of this work"

This clearly states that the former Doshu made changes to O-Sensei's Aikido.

The Aikido as taught in Iwama strictly follows the techniques and way of Aikido as left to us by the founder.

This was handed out to participants of the seminar held by Saito Morihiro Sensei in the Swiss Alps in May 1999.
