Re: Does Budo require a sense of shame?
I'm struggling myself with this idea of 'shame' in budo...can you elaborate on your contribution based on the posts that others have written?
I do believe that Budo needs standards...personal standards as well as group standards. I'm not yet completely convinced that 'shame' adequately represents the motivation to reach those standards. I may not be understanding the use of 'shame' either.
Perhaps Dr. Goldsbury can speak some more to 'hojiru'(?) if that is the correct term, and its place in the japanese society?
