Re: Sport is the new Budo

Budo is a state of mind more so than a particular practice.

In the Army it is entirely possible to have warriors and those that live every minute of everyday trying to be a warrior and live within the ethos of a warrior.

There are others that are there simply to collect a paycheck.

and others that fall in between those extremes.

They do the same things, wear the same uniform, and collect the same paycheck.

Budo ain't about aikido, judo, tae kwon do, competition, no competion, sport or no sport....but how you personally approach your training and life in general.
