Aikido Aikijujitsu Read More >>> O'Sensei • Hiroshi Isoyama Shihan • Steven Seagal Shihan • Gozo Shioda Shihan • Sokaku Takeda

Before Morihei Ueshiba created Aikido there was Aikijujitsu, Aikijujitsu is deeply rooted throughout the history of feudal Japan. Daito Ryu Aikijujitsu perhaps being the most recognized of all Aikijujitsu.

The history of Aikido is a rich and some what diverse subject to say the least. Morihei Ueshiba more affectionately known as  "O'Sensei" left a legacy of first generation Shihans that in turn created their own style of Aikido.

We have provided you with a short history on some of the various styles that are present in today's Aikido world.

If you would like to suggest another Shihan to be placed on our Aikido History page who branched off and started his own style or Aikido Federation please e-mail your recommendation to fkani@wahingtonaiki.org.
