Hi, Chuck.

I think I actually picked that up here on Aikiweb. I took it to mean "Sword-war-art" although it could be sort of a Bush-ism.

I see the Truth in your statement about sword training being about much more than sword-fighting. The odds are so far against me getting into a swordfight, anyway, this is probably a non-issue.

I think I'll start shopping for a non-sharpened, steel iaito and "get over it".

Anybody ever seen one?
