I have a question to all of you who speaks japanese.
Every where I look, people use the terms Ikkyo, nikyo, sankyo, yonkyo, etc.
In my style of aikido (Yonshinkai) we use the terms Ikkajo which literary means first control (or so I've heard.) It is the same thing for nikajo, sankajo, yonkajo...
And the way I understand Ikkyo, it would mean first level/class/rank. So, shouldn't people be using Ikkajo instead of Ikkyo???
Please do tell me.

When you learn to love hell, you will be in heaven
