Toward the end of his life, Jigoro Kano adopted the pen name "Ki ichi sai." I don't know the kanji, and don't trust Dennis Helm's translation of what this meant farther than I can throw a yokozuna. Anybody know for sure what Kano was saying here?

Helm said it meant "return to the source." He then further interpreted this to mean a return to Zen Buddhism.
