Re: "Traditional budo" and "Fighting art"

Hmm. I mostly agree with that. I would say that the outcome of training aikido is ideally that you manifest your true self. However, the outcome of zen training (ideally) is that you understand your true self. I'm not sure what the optimal outcome of yoga is, but I suspect it is not exactly either of these two things as well.
