There is a huge confusion between honor and ego, I'm afraid, in and amongst the so-called warrior class. In history, you could settle a dispute of honor with a duel. Unfortunately, people became so obsessed with their 'honor' that they would challenge someone to a duel simply for looking at them funny or doing some other trivial thing - anything which they could spin as an offense to their 'honor'.

Many lives were lost in such duels and this wasn't something limited to Japan. Medieval and Renaissance Europe experienced the same thing. Even today, many lives are lost to those who take offense to a certain look, manner of dress, certain comments and such which really aren't an attack of honor but more of just the ego.

To me, honor is something which allows you to look at yourself in the mirror and like what you see - that you can live your life with integrity. Honor is what keeps you 'right', even when nobody is around.

No matter how bad things can be, nobody can take away your honor unless you surrender it. So, give up that wallet. Back down from that fight. Don't yell back at that person. Let that tailgater go around you. Admit when you are wrong. Apologize more, accuse less. Help someone every day. Your honor will stay intact and you will like the person you become.

But, when you and/or your loved ones are faced with certain, unavoidable danger - then stand tall, look it square in the eye and say 'not today'...

That, to me, is what I call 'honor'.



AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

you can also get a couple of bricks stand them on end and practice stepping onto them, standing on them, and finnaly doing squats on them. if that gets too easy turn them outward. don't break an ankle...

each school does have different types of footwork and we learn them collectively just to "move".
togakure ryu shuffles
gyokko ryu arching and circular steps and spins
koto ryu 3 types of footwork (cross-stepping is only 1)i can't give you everything
