Re: "Traditional budo" and "Fighting art"

I enjoy working with adults (50 plus); because, they tend to value their health more, and tend to be more ki driven then braun driven
Roy, not banging on you here, but what's given you the idea that ki and "brawn" are incompatible?

One other spurious general question, I often read the words "sophisticated" thrown around when comparing aikido to other arts (strangely enough, normally when budo or fighting rears it's head in the thread title) but can someone please explain just what they actually mean by this?

(of course, leaving aside the idea that they're not using the original meaning of the word, but with hakama involved, who knows..)
