There are many different styles that can cater to the individual's interest be it hard or soft Aikido, ki and philosophy focus, a pastime, a competitive sport, and interest in open-hand arts, security applications and traditional weapons (sword and staff). All dojo at some point have a link to the founder of Aikido: Morehei Ueshiba.
O-Sensei developed the art of Aikido and it changed as he changed from the martial forms of his pre-war Aiki-budo to the gentler, but ultimately no less effective, softer (ki-style) schools of Aikido later in life. His students took what they learned and formed Aikido schools and Aikido styles of their own - giving us the choice we have today.
