WHAT IS AIKIDO

   Aikido is a modern martial art based on 

   traditional styles. It was created by 

   Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969, referred

   to as O-Sensei, meaning "great teacher").

   After a transformative spiritual experience,

   O'Sensei dedicated his art to Universal

   Peace. The physical appearance and     

   philosphical underpinnings of Aikido

   evoke the movement of nature and the

   unity of mankind. Aikidoka (those who 

   practice the art) train to develop internal 

   self-control in order to resolve conflict

   in the outer world. Aikido can be practiced

   at many levels and intensities suitable to

   students of all ages.
