I seem to remember a qoute such like that if one did shiai in aikido, it would become shiai (with shi = death), but are currently disconnected from my sources. The far end of my mind soehow relates this quotation to O Sensei. As Peter stated, that

The word @( SHI-ai) has the sense of two teams
meeting for a game or match and is not used by O Sensei.
it seems to be very unlikely. Does anyone recognize the quotation I have in mind and can trace a source?
