Are you wondering what Demilitarization means?
Well, I'll tell you the short version story of what it means to me. Ever since I was a child, if I ever had an opportunity to make a wish, it was always for world peace. Shooting stars, the large half of the wishbone, throwing coins into fountains, eye lashes on my cheek. It was always and remains a wish for world peace.
I came across Aikido and discovered O'Sensei (the founder of Aikido) some 8 years ago or so now. O'Sensei developed Aikido (a Japanese martial art) as a bridge to a peaceful world. He held a vision for world peace. I trained hard in Aikido for a number of years, until I almost had my back broken by a fellow student during training. I had to give up the training and it killed me.
Then one day around this same time, I discovered the artwork of Kaz Tanahashi. A friend sent me a link, as Kaz is a political artist and so am I. One of Kaz's artworks made me cry. I emailed him and asked him if he would be my teacher. He said yes. Kaz was the adopted son of O'sensei. I have kind of adopted Kaz as a father figure.
