Mitsuteru Ueshiba

Mitsuteru Ueshiba (植芝 充央 Ueshiba Mitsuteru, born 1980) is the son of the third and current dōshu of the Aikikai, Moriteru Ueshiba. In keeping with the iemoto system of familial generations in traditional Japanese martial arts, he is expected to succeed his father as dōshu, becoming the Fourth Dōshu (四代道主). He is a great-grandson of Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of aikido. From April 2010 he has been the acting-dojocho of Ibaraki Prefecture Aikikai Iwama dojo. Mitsuteru is often referred to as Waka-sensei (若先生) to distinguish him from his father. ("Waka-sensei" means "young teacher," and applied to Moriteru Ueshiba when Kisshomaru Ueshiba was still alive; this usage also exists outside of aikido, and is a facet of senpai and kōhai.)
