O-sensei, the “Great Teacher,” and the Ox
6 colors on Creme
Ueshiba Morihei, or O-sensei as he was called, was as wise as an Owl and strong as an Ox. Guarding his power was his Obi. O-sensei practiced Daito Ryu and founded the way of harmonizing with force and energy called Aikido, in 1942. He was a Master of the Jo staff.
O-sensei was a self educated farmer, a simple man, who wrote poetry, calligraphy, and he was an O-moto Ryu Priest but he could crush your wrist bones in his bare hand.
Legend tells that O-sensei could stumble a man at 30 paces with just his voice! Being the only survivor from an ambush, while escorting a diplomatic entourage in Manchuria, it is said he could dodge bullets! Standing in the middle of crossfire, he could feel the aim of his attacker’s guns and would anticipate their “line” of fire. Not a single bullet touched him!
It is perceived that this is who George Lucas modeled Obi-wan Kenobi from when he created the Jedi, in Star Wars, after seeing footage of the awesome, mysterious power of O-Sensei from 1942.
