Iwama Aikido has not attempted to modify or change Morihei Ueshiba, the founder's, original teachings.

Iwama Aikido adheres to maintaining the purity of form & clarity of the art that O'Sensei intended.

This is achieved by developing a thorough understanding of the basics in addition to training regularly in the Aikido weapons syllabus of Saito Sensei.
