"Who are skilled in combat do not become angered,
those who are skilled at winning do not become afraid.
Thus the wise win before the fight, while the ignorant fight to win."
Morihei Ueshiba

Before founding aikido, Morihei Ueshiba was skilled in different styles of jujitsu, as well as sword fighting. Aikido's philosophy was a result of three major spiritual incidents of Ueshiba. In these experiences, he received a divine inspiration that steered away from the brutal mental attitude of his earlier martial training Ueshiba said that the way of the warrior is the "way of divine love that nurtures and protects all things."

Ueshiba developed aikido largely from Daito--ryu- Aiki-ju-jutsu, kenjutsu, including training movements such as those for the yari (spear), jo-(a short quarterstaff), and juken (a long sharp blade or sword ).

Aikido emphasis on the spiritual and mental growth of its students. This is a result of Morihei Ueshiba's belief in Buddhism and Shinto
