Hi Peter and Chuck,
The true Budo: What I meant is that since the founder of Aikido called it Budo and intended it to be Budo, so probably it is Budo To say Aikido is The true Budo is an exaggeration and I agree with you.
As a note, M. Ueshiba would never have said "THE true Budo", because there is no "the" in Japanese. He would have said "Aikido is true budo", which has very different implications.
