Reading that i understand that under your point of view Aikido is not Budo.
Can you ellaborate please?
Aikido is Budo - it is Aiki Budo
I read somewhere Osensei stated that Aikido should
be the martial art that ends the need for traditional Budo -
or something to that effect.
Budo is generally a way to perfect the individual -
Aikido is way to perfect the world.
This is my understanding - I can be grossly wrong
Aikido begins at the end of all Budo as I see it.
So any Budo can lead to the door of Aiki - but in order to become
Aiki ,the techniques must change to the principle of Aiki -
as Osensei did them.
Will this do ?
