Re: Business and Budo

Hello Lynn,

I can accept your division, but in Japan it covers both budo professionals (income only from budo) and budo amateurs (stable income, but not from budo).

In your opinion which category would George fall into?

Best wishes,

Hi Peter,
Until recently (4 years ago) I fell into the budo professional category. But now I am a member of a third and as yet undiscussed group... budo professionals whose spouses have a "real" income. (My wife is a business lawyer) I suspect that quite a few "budo professionals" fall into this category here in the states. Always a good thing when at least one of you has some practical skills...
