Minoru Mochizuki (1907-2003)

On May 30, 2003, the aikido world lost one of its greatest figures. Minoru Mochizuki was among the top tier of students of Morihei Ueshiba O-Sensei and was himself the creator of a unique composite martial system called “Yoseikan Budo.” He stands as an epic figure in the martial arts world, his career spanning some 90 years! Mochizuki had the good fortune of studying directly under Jigoro Kano, founder of judo, 10th dan judo great Kyuzo Mifune, and Morihei Ueshiba, the originator of aikido.
