Hi Greg,

Indeed, I do remember Witt sensei saying that his interpretation of "keiko" was "tracing the old." He might not have meant it literally but may have just been referring to the kind of practice in which people in calligraphy partake -- of placing their teacher's calligraphy underneath another piece of paper and "tracing" the faint characters.

If I get a chance, I'll see if I can talk to him about it at the Aiki Expo.
