Morihei Ueshiba is the founder of Aikido.

 

"The art of peace is medicine for a sick world. Evil and anarchy exist in this world only because people have forgotten that everything is connected to a Source. Return to this Source and leave behind all your selfish thoughts, petty desires and anger. Those who are possessed by nothing possess everything. "

Honorarily called O-Sensei, or Great Teacher, Morihei Ueshiba was born on December 14th, 1883 in Tanabe, of the Wakayama prefecture in Japan. At the encouragement of his father, Ueshiba started training in Sumo and swimming in order to improve his weak physical condition. He was also tought jujutsu at a Kito-ryu dojo and japanese swordmanship in the art of Shinkage-Ryu. In 1912 he moved to Hokkaido. There he was introduced to and became a student of Takeda Sokaku, a Daito – ryu Aiki – jujutsu instructor. In 1919 in Ayabe, Kyoto, he met O. Deguchi, a priest and emmissary of Omoto-kyo, a neo-sintoistic religious movement. Ueshiba became a disciple of Deguchi for the next 8 years, during which period he was greatly incluenced by Deguchi's pacifist teachings. In 1927 he moved with his family to Tokyo, where he started teaching his own version of aiki-jujitsu, which in 1942 he named Aikido (the way of harmonious energy) after moving to Iwama prefecture. Ueshiba died on the 26th of April, 1969.
