“Budo has revolutionized our understanding of the creation of modern Aikido”
Thank you very much for reading this series of background articles on Morihei Ueshiba’s 1938 technical manual titled “Budo” together with Morihiro Saito Sensei’s explanatory book and video on the same subject. “Budo” is one of the most important historical documents on the evolution of aikido technique and is very relevant to contemporary students of aikido. We are indebted to the Founder and to Morihiro Saito Sensei for having created these wonderful resources.
Here is a video trailer that will give you a good look at Morihiro Saito Sensei’s approach to an analysis of O-Sensei’s old training manual.
