Bushido - Bushido is a word from the Japanese samurai era basically meaning bold action. For the Ishido it means anything is possible if you take bold action and go for it. Example: “We need more Ishidos who want to dive in, take bushido action.” Alternate meaning- how your hair looks when you first wake up. “Man,my hair was all Bushido this morning.”

To the Japanese, Bushido means “Way of the Warrior” which is defined as looking after each other without regard to your own welfare, the elimination of selfish desires, bravely facing all enemies, and keeping a stainless mind. The closest American equivalent is the act of being chivalrous. Daitan'na kōdō is the pronunciation of the Japanese kanji for “bold action” and there is no word for “anything is possible,” outside of “hope,” because the Japanese culture is one based in acceptance, as opposed to accomplishment. The “way of the warrior” is to help and protect, by defending against and correcting the actions of others, in a calm and efficient manner; not to employ bold action in the pursuit of possibilities.
