Re: Why do we bow in Aikido?

Many of the things we say and do have origins that today would seem inappropriate, offensive, politically incorrect, or in conflict with our religions. Whatever it is, in the dojo or out, what matters is the meaning we give it now - not what it meant to a culture that no longer exists.

"Do, or do not. There is no 'try'."
