shobudo's Journal

Posting Access:
Anybody , Moderated
This is a community about the study of and practice of budo or the martial way.

The phrase Sho bu refers to the "highest prinicipal of bu" and the final name Ueshiba Sensei used for aikido. It also refers to the gambling spirit of the nature of life and death confrontations.

This journal is for people who want to talk about the heart of their training. About their spiritual journies that they have or are going through. Its not specific to any style, but I do ask that you leave questions about "where to find a place to train" or ask for suggestions on where to buy new equipment for somewhere else.

For new members, post with your name... style of martial art, years trained, and at least one real experiance that has moved you beyond being thrown.
