Aikido is a modern Japanaese Martial Art created by the Founder, Morihei Ueshiba. After the Founder's passing, his son Kisshomaru Ueshiba was inaugurated as Aikido Doshu II. At present, Moriteru Ueshiba has succeeded his father as Aikido Doshu III. Philosophy of Aikido makes it very personal as it cherishes the uniqueness in every soul, while it embraces the life in collaboration between people and the tolerance to others. Aikido is the process of learning how and the way of living in harmony. It is up to you for what you make of your Aikido and how much you apply it to your daily life - the opportunity limitless - with you as the center of your own seeking to achieve better living. At ADA you would have the rare opportunity to learn from the source under the guidance of Rev. Zenko Okimura Shihan, connecting through his unique interaction with the founder, the Ueshiba family, and affectionate relationship with Hombu Dojo.
