Aikido Dento Iwama Ryu

This is a great video showing insights into the Aikido of Dento Iwama Ryu as preserved by Morihiro Saito and now championed by his son, Hitohira. Iwama Ryu is the Aikido of the founder, O’Sensei Morihei Ueshiba, during his time living and teaching in Iwama. The curriculum is broader than Aikikai Aikido and contains the bukiwaza of ken and jo. This along with the Yoshinkan are my favorite expressions of this modern Budo.
