History
Aikido was created in Japan by Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969), also known as O'Sensei. Before creating aikido, O'Sensei trained extensively in several varieties of Jujitsu and Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu, and in swordsmanship. Ueshiba also immersed himself in universal socio-political harmony.

Incorporating these principles into his martial art, O'Sensei developed many aspects of aikido in concert with his philosophical ideology.

Aikido Today
Upon the founder's death in 1969, his son Kisshomaru Ueshiba (1921-1999), became the second Aikido Doshu. Kisshomaru Sensei's relentless drive to spread Aikido around the globe in accordance with his father's wishes, has contributed vastly to Aikido's popularity today.

He was succeeded by his second son Moriteru Ueshiba, third and current Doshu.
