“Why would Sokaku Takeda relocate with his entire family to the underdeveloped village of Shirataki and live there the rest of his life?”

Stanley Pranin presents a 28-minute lecture titled “Morihei Ueshiba and Sokaku Takeda.” He explores the complex relationship between these two martial arts geniuses, and explains how Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu techniques came to form the basis for most of the techniques of modern aikido.


Among the topics covered are the following:

  • Background on Sokaku Takeda
  • Meeting of Morihei and Sokaku in Hokkaido
  • Morihei’s study of Daito-ryu under Sokaku
  • Sokaku’s 1922 visit to Ayabe to teach in Morihei’s dojo
  • Morihei’s licensing as an certified instructor of Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu
  • Morihei’s connection with Sokaku after becoming a professional martial arts instructor
  • Strain in relationship between Morihei and Sokaku over money issues
  • Morihei distances himself from contact with Sokaku and Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu, and founds his own art called “Aikido”
  • Technical influence of Daito-ryu on modern Aikido
  • Resources for study and training in Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu
