    if Dojo is "place of the way", is Jodo "way of the place"?

  • #2
    does downwind mean the same as wind-down?

    crappy example, couldn't think of a better one on the spot. would you want to be downwind of a jodo dojo as they wind-down their practice on a hot day? ok i am studying/ procrastinating now, please make allowances for lame humour. And I don't know the answer to the original q. doesn't seem likely to me...

      hah, hah, great question!!

      Dojo = 道場
      Jodo = 杖道

      The kanji for JO is different. In the first instance it means "place," in the 2nd "stick."

      道場 = "a place to practise the way" (if you like)
      杖道 = "the way of the stick"

            The Way of Joe? Would that be right up there with the Tao of Steve?

              Nah, that would be Joe Ryu. Or maybe Muso Jikiden Joe Ryu.
