**Reminder** We have a guest from Aikido of Cleveland coming tonight. Please come and train if you can. With all of today's modern advances, you still cannot replace integrity and character. Character is the foundation on which you stand and integrity is the trait the ensures all others. The Japanese call it ichi-gon or "to say one thing." There is a saying bushi no ichi-gon which literally translates to a warrior only says one thing, but what it really means is that the word of a warrior is paramount. This is contrary to modern life where you, "fake it till you make it" or "dazzle them with brilliance or baffle them with BS." However, if you follow the Way then you mean what you say and do only what you say - there is only this one thing hence ichi-gon.
