Re: Aikido and Samurai: a few questions

I believe Mark is correct in what he's presented...I wish that I had something more than a few fictional movies I've seen to back it up, though.

I do remember that the name 'aikido' was originally discussed as a general category of arts rather than a specific art. Kind of interesting actually. There are some articles on this on Aikido Journal, Stanley's series on the kobukan dojo I believe.
