Re: Use of the term Aikido"ka"
I practice aikido and play judo and I don't call myself or anyone else a "ka" of either as I am American and live in the US and speak English.
If I was going to visit Japan, I'd bone up on this stuff. Maybe. After watching the J.A.A. teaching/marketing video I'm not so sure they'd recognize what I do. It's not nearly slam-bang enough, seems like.
