Aikido – Joe McHugh

Aikido was developed in the first half of the 20th century in Japan by Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969) a master of various traditional Japanese martial arts. It is a creative synthesis of various japanese budo arts combined with a specific philosophical perspective. Morihei Ueshiba who is referred to as O’Sensei initiated a reform of the martial arts, where the goal is not the destruction of the opponent but the steering, guiding and the neutralization of the aggressive attacking energy.
