Welcome to Aikido Hawaii

I have come to Hawaii in order to build a "silver bridge". Until now, I have remained in Japan, building a "golden bridge" to unite Japan, but henceforward, I wish to build a bridge to bring the different countries of the world together through the harmony and love contained in aikido. I think that aiki, offspring of the martial arts, can unite the people of the world in harmony, in the true spirit of budo, enveloping the world in unchanging love.

- Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido
