Does anyone know the meaning of "Banyu Hatten"

(Japanese of course) All the info is available about this Aikido branch on the internet EXCEPT the meaning of the term!

Many thanx

"Banyu" means "All things" (as in "everything in the universe") and "hatten" means "develop" or "build up". So I suppose that you might say "Universal Development", but there may well be a more elegant way to say it .

Best,

Chris
