How is it that the Aikido term for connection or union i.e. musubi is also the name for a rice and spam Hawaiian snack, Spam Musubi. Is there a better Aikido term for connection?
People used to carry rice balls as individual balls knotted into a piece of cloth - hence the name musubi, which means "knot" (but can also mean connection - anything "knotted" together).

Best,

Chris
