quotes from the mayonnaise jar...

"Even though our path is completely different from the warrior arts of the past, it is not necessary to abandon totally the old ways. Absorb venerable traditions into this Art by clothing them with fresh garments, and building on the classic styles to create better forms.

-- Morihei Ueshiba, as he was creating the martial art of Aikido

(Aikido is a form that emphasizes defensive re-direction of force over offensive damage.)
