View Full Version : Budo Explained
There are many explanations of BUDO but the best one I have ever seen is the explanation on the web site at British Aikido
just scroll down to the box " Budo Explained".
I found Budo a nice bit of poetry but few high ranking people following it .
we have a "code of the Bushido" 7 rules . but because of my religious affiliation when opportunity hit they lied their ass's off .
its nice vary Knight in shining armor but not adhered to vary much .

Sorry about the bad link on the first post, not sure why it doesn't work ?, could be the use of capitals, please try this as it is well worth a visit.
You are a crafty spammer! I realize that you believe that certain people got the shaft from the British Aikido Board, and you feel that you need to spread this word on multiple guestbooks and websites, but to mislead people to go to your site by giving them a link to an explaination of Budo is very uncool.
Mr. Ellis, I have class to go to now, but when I get back, I would appreciate (a) an apology to the members of BudoSeek! for this very un-Budolike tactic, and (b) a good reason I should not ban you from our site.
If anyone else has any input on Mr. Ellis' disposition, I would be happy to entertain it.
Dear Mr Carver
I am sorry if you feel you have been " spammed", but I will not apologise for exposing people who bring the good name of Budo
into disrespect, as in this case, with the full support of the UK Aikido governing body, and then use the names of many of my old Japanese teachers who are long deceased to make a fraudulent biography to support their claims, as detailed on the NACD the
National Aikido Communication Database ...
I am sure that your members would be more concerned with the
content of "Jack Poole's Biography" and the statements added from such good people as Kazuo Chiba Shian and Sensei R Otani to name but a few. than an accusation
If uncontested Mr Pooles claims would change not only the true history of British Aikido but also that of UK Shotokan Karate, Judo, and Kendo.
I trust that I have not offended you or your members in my persuit of making the public aware of this issue.
Yours in Budo

Personall,y Im rather offended at the way you chose to use deception and as Robert said, "Un-budolike" tactics.
Were you to say "I would like to make the members of Budoseek aware of..." or something to that effect, I cannot imagine anyone having any major issue with your page, nor the linking thereto. However you did not choose that road. You chose to make a post on the philosophy sub-forum, with a decidely missleading title, as well as missleading text in your post itself. You did this, not only undermining basic "nettequite", you did this undermineing the basic dignity of Budoseek itself. You did this not to inform others but to embarass someone, who to my knowledge isnt a member on this forum, and therefore unable to defend themselvs.
The page of humiliation you link to is not a page that I can imagine any respectable human creating... certainly not one who thinks they have a firm enough grasp on the concept of Budo so as to deride anothers answer.
Why dont you tell us what YOU think Budo is? Do you think you live up to your own definition?

For anyone drawn to this thread by the title, here is a more relevant link;
An "Official" definition of Budo was drawn up by the various arts that make up the Japan Budo Association (Nippon Budo Kyogikai), in April 1981, the "Budo Kensho".
This Budo Kensho is available on several websites, in English or Japanese. Go to this site (http://www.shorinji-kempo.org/) for an English version. From the main page, select Articles, then scroll down to "Budo Kensho". I'm sorry, I can't link to it directly.
In the meantime, can anyone explain what THEY (the guys on the earlier link, from the BAB) mean by Budo? I saw this on a poster the other day "4th Dan Jujitsu, 3rd Dan Budo".... that's not the way I thought it worked. What is this "art" called Budo?
Sorry to jump in here, but that's pretty good HAHA! Budo 3rd dan, almost as good as one I heard yesterday when talking to a prospective student who was observing class, I asked him about any prior MA studies and he said "Oh yeah, I took 2 yrs. of Samurai, it was really hard!" Wow.

How about an update Jack Poole's "problem". Would be very interested to find out what is happening.
