About O Sensei

O'SenseiHistory : Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969), the founder of Aikido, was proficient in many martial arts, but in 1925 had the first of three visions or reality shifts. He came to see that all his training cultivated death but he wanted to use his skill and understanding to enhance life. In his own words, "All at once, I understood the nature of creation: the Way of a Warrior is to manifest Divine Love, a spirit that embraces and nurtures all things."

O Sensei (Venerable Teacher) was a deeply spiritual man whose main desire was to foster peace. Aikido is a gift for all humanity, and thanks to O Sensei, his son Kisshomaru, the second doshu, and his son, Moritu, the current doshu, Aikido is practiced throughout the world. While many different organizations exist, each with its own flavor and emphasis, all Aikido flows from one source, O Sensei's remarkable vision that the way of the warrior is really the way of peace.
