Saito enrolled as a student of Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba in 1946. One of the art’s foremost technicians, he was the acknowledged authority on Aikido weapons training. Saito operated Ueshiba’s private dojo in Iwama, Japan and served as caretaker of the Aiki Shrine for more than 30 years until his passing in 2002. He traveled extensively throughout the world for over three decades teaching his comprehensive training methods while building large followings in the USA, Europe, and Australia.
