A nice theory lesson again. Focus on the background and philosophical context of Aikido. Looked at Confusianism, Taoism, Neoconfusianism, Zen budism and the relations of those to our western world.
Layers in traditional Japanese society were explored (Shi,No,Ko,Sho) and the differences between the moral standards as portrait by Confusianism and the implementation of those by the Samurai (with their Kiri sute gomen).
