“Morihei gradually distanced himself from the techniques of Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu over a span of more than two decades”
With the aid of rare historical photos, Stanley Pranin describes the process of Morihei Ueshiba’s gradual modification of Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu techniques into the forms that would become the basis of modern aikido. The roles of Daito-ryu and Morihei’s teacher, Sokaku Takeda, in the evolution of aikido were for many years minimized before recently becoming well documented through Stanley Pranin’s published research.
ABSOLUTE PROOF OF THE ROOTS OF
MODERN AIKIDO TECHNIQUES!
