When I read articles about Ueshiba when he first started his martial art it seems like people considered him some type of wizard. The Judoka were somehow wary of reputed Aikido masters. Does anyone know anything about this type of behavior?
Ueshiba's mystism was famous though.
Mr. Jones.... Tell us why you hate freedom.
Why does he not answer?!
Why is it so hard for him to answer?!!
--J. "Boondocks!!" D.

DCS . . . tell us why you hate America. . . .
Okay . . . okay . . . to answer what I think is Mr. Jones' questions, it is a well-known phenomenon for "founding figures" to attract and aquire mythic attributes over time. Whether those claims were valid "at the time" as opposed to being told now, I would have to see some documentation. Remember, Ueshiba could teleport--and my Imperious Grand Poohbah could stand up from his death-bed and execute perfect form despite renal shut-down. . . .
. . . and there was this guy in Palestine. . . .
Because Aikido is meant for royalty. Like the Shah of Iran, if he knew aikido he could have easily scared the Ayatollah off with his "divine" moves and kept his throne.
If you want this thread to evolve into something useful instead of into a urinal like it seems to be right now consider posting a few of those articles. You'll get better replies and will contribute to the historical info on the site.
