Aikido Books

Aikido, a modern Japanese martial art, was founded by Morihei Ueshiba (often referred to as O-Sensei) in the early 20th century. Rooted in the traditional samurai arts and influenced by Ueshiba’s spiritual beliefs, Aikido is characterized by its emphasis on harmony, peace, and self-improvement.

The journey of Aikido began in the 1920s when Ueshiba, a master of several classical martial arts, synthesized his extensive training and spiritual insights into a unique discipline. His vision was to create an art that not only focused on self-defense but also on the harmonious resolution of conflict. Unlike many martial arts, Aikido techniques aim to neutralize an attacker’s energy and redirect it, often using joint locks, throws, and pins, rather than relying on strikes.

Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, Ueshiba continued to refine Aikido, establishing dojos and training dedicated students who would eventually spread the art worldwide. After World War II, Aikido gained significant popularity, with its philosophy resonating deeply in a world yearning for peace and reconciliation.

Today, Aikido is practiced globally, with millions of practitioners dedicated to its principles of non-violence, personal growth, and the pursuit of harmony. The art’s rich history is preserved and explored through countless books, each offering insights into its techniques, philosophy, and the life of its founder.
