Aikido : Evolved
Aikido was developed in the 1900’s by O-Sensei Morihei Ueshiba. Ueshiba combined his experience training in several styles of Koryū Jūjutsu (primarily Daitō-ryū Aiki-jūjutsu) along with his spiritual beliefs to form a self-defense system which would allow for greater control of an opponent without the need to cause serious harm.
Bushikan Aikido is a derivation of traditional Aikido which focuses on the martial aspects of the art. This allows Bushikan the freedom to continue to evolve techniques to better fit modern situations while continuing to respect the foundation of the art.
Methods of attack include the traditional Shomenuchi and Yokomenuchi but also branch out to include grabs and modern striking combinations. Bushikan Aikido teaches to blend with these attacks, redirecting the momentum in order to utilize technique without the need for strength.
