The Art of Peace, Non-Conflict and Reconciliation.
A very short explanation of the Art
Iwama dojo Japan
The home of Aikido and Historically significant training place of the Founder of Aikido Professor Morihei Ueshiba.
Before Aikido can be explained to any degree one must first appreciate some insight into its creator and founder Professor Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969) O’sensei or great teacher as he was referred to by Masters of other Japanese martial arts, the Japanese government and today practitioners of Aikido from all around the world. Morihei Ueshiba who’s name, ironically when translated means Abundant Peace dedicated his whole life to the study of the Japanese martial Way and the polishing of Mind, Body and Spirit so to purify his own humanity in order to perceive more clearly the profound Mind and movement of the Universe. With this in mind it is here where Aikido begins to express its sophistication as the Art of Non-conflict, Non-violence and Non-competition without detracting in any way from its ability to convey a superior effectiveness as an awesome experience for those who are fortunate in studying and following its Path. and Message.
