No, no, don't let these American English speakers intimidate you -- those things are blinkers. Forunately, simple words like "aikido" and "love" have no such ambiguity and everyone is in total agreement as to what they mean, even when they've been translated...

Anyone know of any founders of martial arts who claimed their art "is hate"? Just a small point, but it serves to suggest the (translated) "aikido is love" label doesn't make the art as unique as some people would like to think.
