O Sensei Morihei Ueshiba AikidoThis is a rare demonstration was found by our good friend Gil Fitts Sensei at Tenrokan Aikido Dojo in Durham, NC.    This 8mm film is of an Aikido demonstration held at the Self-Defense Ministry in Tokyo’s Akasaka circa 1957. This section is the performance of O Sensei Morihei Ueshiba. His main uke are Hiroshi Tada and Nobuyoshi Tamura. The film was part of André Nocquet’s private 8 mm collection. Nocquet was the very first foreign live-in student of the founder of Aikido Morihei Ueshiba. He spent 3 years living with the Ueshiba family from 1955 to 1957 and trained daily at the Kobukan Dojo.
