Gathers the gas channel!

Today I need to read a web site written in non-simplified chinese characters(used in Taiwan). Though I can read some characters, not so familiar with those, so I tried to translate the site using

http://babelfish.altavista.com

The chinese web site was translated quite well. However, I often saw weird sentence.

'Gathers the gas channel.....blah blah blah..'

What's that? 'Gathers the gas channel?'

After reading original web site, I know the meaning of the sentence.

It was '合氣道'(aikido)

Jaemin

ps. I heard Aikido sounds like 'He Ji Dao' in chinese.

Eeep!
