(1883-1969). Also known as Iwama Style or Ryu, its empty hand and weapons forms
were systematized and handed on by Ueshiba's principal student the late Morihiro
Saito(1928-2002), 9th Dan.

Aikido Takemusu SPECIALISES IN MIND FOCUSSING technique known as
"Mind - Centre - Extension"(MCE), which together with its technical
forms and strategies have evolved from Japanese sword technique.

Barry Knight, 6th Dan, Chief instructor of Aikido Takemusu and a senior
student of Morihiro Saito established the organization in Australia in 1982,
and has overseen technical direction in Australia since that date.
MCE, together with micro and macro avoidance control strategies, enables
students to develop EFFORTLESS FREE EXPRESSION of mind and body through
empty hand, sword and staff practices.
