How do you pronounce the founder's name? Is it:
1) more hi oosheeba ?
2) more ee hi awshiba ?
3) Or something different?
EDITED: Also, how do you pronounce noquet?
Japanes pronounciation is mostly quite straight forward, so he is pronounced Morihei Ueshiba, clear?
Well it is a little bit difficult to transcribe it to English as Mark Twain did show us that "fish" is pronounced "ghoti", or was it vice versa?
My best guess is More-ee-hae OO-e-shiba
Same for French, if you mean André Nocquet, i ld say "Nok-ae", English is quite difficult to write it without potential misinterpretation
