Aikido is a young Japanese kind of BUDO that developed from the 1930s onwards. Based on feudal Japan's fighting techniques, it developed into an art of peace or non-fighting.
Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969) founded this art. Initially he defined his art with the name aiki-bujutsu, later aiki-budo and finally AIKIDO: "The way of harmony with the Ki of the Universe".
Koichi Tohei (1920-2011) began practicing in 1939 under the direction of Morihei Ueshiba. In 1956 he was appointed chief of Aikido instructors. In 1969 he received the 10th Dan. In 1971 he founded his federation of Aikido with the name of Ki no Kenkyukai: Ki research society.
Sensei Yoshigasaki studied Ki and Aikido from Tohei Sensei. Since 1977 he has taught Aikido in Europe. He developed Aikido theory, philosophy and techniques a lot. His federation is called Ki no Kenkyukai Internationale.
