The Spirit of Aikido - Kisshomaru Ueshiba

The recent expansion of aikido on a world-wide scale is nothing less than phenomel. The Total aikido population today exceeds one million, and the International Aikido Federation is growing stronger than ever. The reason for this lies in aikido itself, which, I believe, expresses in both principle and practice the highest form of martial-aesthetic-spiritual art that traditional Japanese culture has produced.
