“O-Sensei’s elite cadre of collaborators who forged today’s Aikido”
Stanley Pranin’s beautiful “Aikido Chronological Chart” may be downloaded by all members of the Aikido Journal Members Site — both free and paid — as a pdf file. This carefully researched chart contains photographs and capsule biographies of some 70 of the best-known disciples of Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba. The kanji characters for all names are also included, and each period is color-coded for easy reference.
Many times, aikido practitioners have little understanding of those that preceded them, or the remarkable heritage of which they are the beneficiaries. This chart, titled “The Principal Disciples of Morihei Ueshiba,” will give you an overall view of the various periods in the evolution of aikido, and the important people who learned from Morihei Ueshiba and were responsible for the dissemination of his art.
With the advent of the information age, no one need be left behind and wondering about the origins of the life-changing art that we practice. Inform yourself and add a whole new dimension to your study of aikido!
