Re: Is is it still Aikido if you take away the Japanese clothes, etiquette and other things?

Mao tried to do away with the Chinese characters and adopt the Roman alphabet (that's the origin of Pinyin, I believe). I know the Japanese have discussed in the past adopting English as an official second language in Japan. Maybe they considered getting rid of the Chinese characters and kana as well.
When it comes to putting writing on cars, they tend to use romanji instead of kana or kanji.
