Excerpt from Radio Interview with Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido

The above is an excerpt of a rare interview with Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba. The entire interview from which this extract was taken runs about 15 minutes and was broadcast on radio in Japan sometime in the early 1960s.

Listening to O-Sensei’s actual voice will give you a totally different feel for his personality and mode of expression. He has a terrific sense of humor and speaks very straightforwardly. Notice how he mentions the effect of World War II on his thinking and the future direction of aikido.

The complete interview is available as a downloadable video here
