another unrealistic proposal/request

Personally, i'm quite happy sticking with Japanese names (this is moving from US to France, so you can see why). But what would be nice is a cross-dojo translation table.

Something like

ki society             | ffaaa
---------------------  + ------------
ikkyo irimi            | ikkyo omote
kokyu nage  tekubitomi | irimi tenkan
And then nice little gaps to show concepts that dojos don't share. Something like that would be useful for the first couple weeks. Or maybe even an aikido naming standards initiative... bah... but that's me thinking like a computer guy.
