    Interesting and somewhat unusual article although not directly related to judo or martial arts. Thanks for posting though, I am glad I read it since it added new knowledge !

    You are welcome, CK Sensei!

    I simply posted the link to that newspaper article, and it is not really directly related to martial arts. However, I have also read about this daimyo in a conservative Catholic web site, http://padrepauloricardo.org/blog/bispos-do-japao-pedem-beatificacao-de-samurai-de-cristo , in wich the author implies that someone who follows the bushido cannot be a Christian. In this article, they state that Takayama was a follower of bushido before his conversiton to Christianism, but it also says that he was baptized when he was twelve years old. Considering that he fought for Toyotomi Hideyoshi in the battle of Yamazaki (according to this other website: http://www.samurai-archives.com/ukon.html ), he could not have abandoned bushido after his baptism.

    So, I think it raises some questions: I know that there are many Christians who think that bushido, or anything related to Eastern martial arts (Judo, included), is not compatible with Christianity, but, is bushido really very different from other warrior codes and ideals, specially from Western medieval (and Christian) chivalry?
