The martial art created by Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba evolved over a period of half a century. Well into his golden years, Morihei Ueshiba O-Sensei displayed amazing abilities in the dojo, being able to easily handle strong young men many years his junior. What was the secret to his effortless strength? Koichi Tohei Sensei attributed it to the Founder’s “ability to relax.” Morihei himself declared that he channeled his energy from a universal source. Whatever the wellspring of Morihei’s power, his demonstrations left uninitiated onlookers entranced as they beheld his magical movements.
Our special for this week consists of a priceless DVD containing some of the most important historical footage of the Founder to have survived. At last, you will have a chance to peer into O-Sensei’s world, and study his graceful movement and masterful technique during the final years of his career. You will also have an opportunity to listen to Morihei’s actual voice explaining his views on aikido and spiritual matters.
Believe that you, too, can develop your skills in aikido to an extraordinary level through hard training and careful study. Morihei Ueshiba proved that this is possible by his own example. Why should you limit yourself and be content with being a casual participant in the art when your life can be transformed through training in Morihei’s aikido?
