At long last, E-Budo has a section dedicated entirely to discussions on IP/IS and Aiki in all their conceptual, historic and practical aspects. Open discussions on any topic relevant to IP/IS and Aiki are welcome here, and anyone with questions, insights, experiences to share, advice, or just plain interest in the subject is encouraged to post.

With the understanding that this is a subject area that has generated quite a bit of heat across the Internet, over the past decade and more, we request that all participants conduct themselves with courtesy and civility. Controversy is not to be avoided, nor are honest arguments discouraged; however, ad hominem attacks, rudeness, trolling and baiting will not be tolerated.

'Nuff said on the rules. Please feel free to post threads, join in discussions, and have fun.
