This film is a fascinating document in that it includes scenes of Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba teaching at the Hombu Dojo in Tokyo toward the end of his life. Lo and behold, there are several clips that show O-Sensei demonstrating paired movements of the Aiki Ken right inside the headquarters dojo. Practitioners need to note such details as these to get a good idea of the atmosphere at the Hombu Dojo and the nature of O-Sensei’s teachings at this stage of his life.
The Morihei Ueshiba Founder’s Course is O-Sensei’s video legacy starting in 1935 and covering a span of 34 years until just before his passing in 1969. Besides the more than 30 films of the Founder, the course includes three rare audio interviews of O-Sensei with complete subtitles. These are wonderfully intimate conversations with the Founder that convey his bright personality, playfulness and sincerity. In addition, the course includes a series of video documentaries by Stanley Pranin on the life of the Founder and the spread of his art worldwide.
