Re: Aikido and Bushido

True, one tradition of explaining the kanji for bu is "don't use the halberd",
Uh, pretty much a mis-placed tradition, according to the writings of people more knowlegable than I am. Check out the postings of Peter Goldsbury and Josh Reyer, here and on aikido journal.

"Bushido" carries much the same baggage.
