Birth and history of Aikido

Aikido was founded by Morihei Ueshiba.

Morihei Ueshiba learned various martial arts and also practiced spiritually.
Before the war, Morihei Ueshiba, who had a good reputation as a martial artist, established the Imperial Buddhist Foundation to spread his martial arts.
After the end of the war, the Emperor’s Association will become the “Aikikai Foundation”.

From this time on, Morihei Ueshiba’s martial arts came to be called Aikido, and Aiki was born.

Since then, Aiki has become widespread and is now spreading overseas.

What is Aikido?

Morihei Ueshiba studied ancient Japanese martial arts such as jujutsu and swordsmanship, encountered Takeda Sokaku’s Daito-ryu Aiki Jiu-jitsu, and was further influenced by Omoto’s idea of ​​valuing peace.

The result of combining these is the reverse joint technique of Daito-Ryu Aikijujutsu, which reverses the joints, and the dangerous technique of holding down with the legs and knees, and kicking is also possible. It is a banned general martial art “Aikido”.

Aiki before Morihei Ueshiba

In Daito-ryu Aiki Jiu-Jitsu, it seems that some of the basic techniques for performing techniques were called “Aiki”.
In Jiu-Jitsu before that, it was used in the character “Aiki”, and it seems that it was used as a technique to deprive the other party of physical freedom.

Morihei Ueshiba’s Aiki

For Morihei Ueshiba, qi has a religious meaning, and it seems that he thought of it as a unity of mind and body.
According to his disciples, Morihei Ueshiba stated that Aiki is a physicalization of the energy of the universe.

Expression of other people’s Aiki


In the expression of a certain Aikido teacher, “Aiki” has a mysterious power of “Ki” that cannot be seen, and there is a mysterious image of throwing it freely without touching the other person, but “Ki” of Aikido “Is “feeling”. The
technique of capturing the other person’s consciousness (deep psychology) by conveying the sign of movement in aikido. “


In another person’s description of Aikido, “Grip, not grab.
Attack, not attack.
Aikido’s technique is not a passive defense technique that goes behind, but an initiative. It’s like an attack technique that holds and controls the battlefield”.

Currently, there are various Aiki schools.
There are many schools established by Morihei Ueshiba’s direct pupils, but there are also other “Aikido” groups.
