Re: Article: On the Interdependent Nature of Tactics and Strategies by "The Grindstone"
I think you are on topic. Please, no worries. As I said, I think this comes down to how we each define and/or understand "Budo" (or "Aikido"). As for the article, I too see a connection - one that stems from here, in my opinion:
(from the article) "Why do you need to decide? Because one needs to be absolutely clear that the decisions one makes about one's training determine this outcome and yet often, people simply drift into a pattern that is at odds with how they see themselves."
Will reply more later,
