Aikido performance by Morihei Ueshiba in 1960 合気道



I had the privilege of visiting the founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, in his dojo in Tokyo in 1960. Also present were his son Kisshomaru and grandson Moriteru. Also Robert Nadeau Shihan. I made a 16mm film for my TV documentary on Japan.

  2. I've played all the major sports the west has to offer but Aikido makes you feel the absolute very best. The falling, striking, spherical movements, concentration, breathing and awareness makes the mind expand and body relax. It's a difficult martial art to master. I've been training since 1995 and still got a long way to go.

  3. Interesting to see Doshu doing something beside tenchi nage. His students really don't do Aikido any favors giving up those falls. He can get a standing submission from a harsh stare these days.

  4. I did Brazilian jiu jitsu for 23 years. I have also dabbled in other forms of contact martial arts. I have never seen anything that even comes close to being such a fake joke as 'Akido'. A collection of total bullshit artists, who put on their dresses, and then go out and 'fight' by extending an arm out for someone to grab, and when they pull on it, you suddenly go flying through the air. Total choreographed bullshit. If you are actually stupid enough to believe that this is the way fights happen, and that this bullshit you are watching is not fake and will actually save you in a real fight….good luck. Go get a black belt in 'Akido'. My 15 year old son with a blue belt in Brazilian jiu jitsu would kick your ass right into next week.

  5. That son of his, was a real softy, my grandmother could blow him over, unbelievable the made him Doshu instead of Gozo Shioda for example, the current Doshu is even worse then his father, this is not a martial art anymore but a way of exercise that has its origine in a real martial art

  6. Достали эти неваляшки! Хорошего бы им мастера спорта по боксу в качестве нападающего, чтобы всё сразу встало на свои места.

  7. For all those who think this is just a dance and that Ueshiba would not last 1 minutes in a real fight, don't understand Akidio and its origins. My Sensi's Sensi studied under Kenshiro Abbe who then developed the style called Goshinkwai, which is the most violent and devastating fighting style I had even seen. On my first training lesson my sensi show me a strike to the rib cage, then he said hit it twice! When you hit anywhere you hear bones crunch, hit the same spot twice. This way the bits of broken bone will go into the internal organs like shrapnel, infect them and increasing the chance the person will die so they can’t come back for revenge! Abbe trained under Ueshiba and opened up a Akido federation, but he still taught street fighting. Don’t think these guys don’t know how to street fight. Maybe the modern Aikido masters don’t. But the men who invented Akidio were well schools in many styles from Judo to Kendo, they were awesome street fighters.
