Aikido History

Morihei Ueshiba was born in 1883 in Tanabe, Japan. In 1903 he joined the army so he could fight in the Russo-Japanese war. He was discharged in 1907 as a sergeant. He studied various martial arts for the next few years and then moved to Hokkaido in 1912 to set up a settlement. There he met Sokaku Takeda, reviver of Daito Ryu, and began to study with him in earnest. He received a teaching license from Takeda in 1922. After becoming a follower of the Omoto Kyo Priest Onisaburo Deguchi in 1919 his art began to change. He opened the Aikido Hombu dojo in Tokyo in 1927 and began to distance himself from Takeda. In 1942 'Aikido' became the name of his art.
