Re: Waka Sensei question

Chris's thoughts:
Actually, that's not correct. That kanji is sometimes used, but the kanji for "great" is also sometimes used, and some people even use the kanji for "old". The kanji for "great" is probably the more common (ie, 216 Google hits for "great" versus 176 for "okina", and the Japanese version of Aikido Journal usually uses "great").
and some others may be found here:
