Mitsuteru Ueshiba: Great-grandson of Aikido’s founder gives Moscow master class
A three-day festival of Aikido was held in the Russian capital in 2010, with master classes being given to hundreds of students by Mitsuteru Ueshiba, great-grandson of Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba.
“Aikido is not a technique to fight with or defeat an enemy. It is the way to reconcile the world and make human beings one family.” That’s what the founder of the Japanese martial art, Morihei Ueshiba said about his brainchild aikido, which means “the way of unifying life energy”.
Participants at the international Aikido festival had the chance to witness Wakasensei Mitsuteru’s ideas in action. He is expected to succeed his father, and become the fourth head of the Aikikai foundation. This year, as many as 2,000 fans of budo, or Japanese martial arts, took part in a three-day exhibition event.
