Unlike other martial arts such as Karate, Kung-fu and more exotic disciplines whose success has been uneven due in part to their fickle handling by the media, especially their portrayal in the movies and on television, Aikido has developed at a regular pace while consolidating its gains. This period of growth has been centered around the efforts of the Hombu Dojo Aikikai (Doshu Kisshomaru Ueshiba), Yoshinkan Aikido (Gozo Shioda Sensei), Tomiki Aikido (Kenji Tomiki Sensei, now deceased) , the Ki Society (Koichi Tohei Sensei), Yoseikan Aikido (Minoru Mochizuki Sensei), the Manseikan Aikido (Kanshu Sunadomari of Kyushu) and various other groups with numerically smaller representation but who incorporate the term “Aikido” in their names.”

Morihei Ueshiba with Shoji Nishio and students in front of Aikikai, February 1969
