Re: YouTube: Morihei, Kisshomaru, and Moriteru Ueshiba in 1960
Great vid! I can't believe I've never seen it before. What an amazing moment in time to have all 3 of the Ueshiba men training at once. Current Doshu looks like he's only about 10 y.o., if that O-sensei himself seems quite energetic and active too, as this was nearly a decade before his death in 1969.
The darkness is due to the fact that is was filmed with what looks like a Super 8 or 16mm camera with a single spotlight mounted on the top of it as the only light source by which to film.
