Re: Reigo Sa Ho, an Aiki Perspective Revisited
Thanks for making this clear for everyone Francis. Behind reigi saho there should always be thoughtfulness and compassion. It shouldn't be katachi - form for the sake of form or rules for the sake of rules. As you explained that is the real meaning of bushi no nasake - the compassion of the warrior. Recently in Japan the meaning has become a little distorted to mean look the other way.
