"One thing has always been true: That book ... or ... that person who can give me an idea or a new slant on an old idea is my friend." - Louis L'Amour

"Ideally, your self-defense will never get physical. Avoiding the situation and running or talking you way out - either of these is a higher order of strategy than winning a physical battle." - Wise Words of Rory Miller, Facing Violence: Chapter 7: after, subparagraph 7.1:medical

"Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider..." - Francis Bacon

I tend to spend time posting on terminology as it relates to the kanji/kana so thought it might best serve the martial community to create a blog devoted to defining the terms with an association to the kanji/kana or "ideograms," used from a traditional point of view. At least as close as I can come from my understanding and perception.

I ask for patience and indulgence with a caveat that all comments complementing, correcting or refuting my views are "Welcome."  If you do refute or correct my posting please provide a source for the correction.

I have five web sites I use in my research along with several books on the cultural words of the country involved, i.e. Japan and China, not to forget two outstanding dictionaries in book form.

Welcome or "Mensori," to the martial art terminology blog, I look forward to an continuous exchange of information to take us closer to the culture and belief systems that brought us the arts such as Okinawan Karate/Kobudo, Japanese Aikido and the many other systems in practice today.
