This was so good, I just had to repeat it here:
All too often people in budo become rather myopic, forgetting there are many ways to train and many ways to access certain universally applicable skills. Just because one type of training provides you with a specific result doesn't mean similar skills are not achieveable by someone else thru a different pedagogy. Budo training can speak to each of us in very specific ways. Every once in a while an individual comes along with a unique set of keys to unlock skills we desire. The question is, can we be open minded enough to recognize these keys if they appear to be something we have already rejected or seem totally different than what we have come to expect?

At the time I met and had the honor to share the mat with Mr Threadgill, I had no idea how important the words above were. Now, as a koryu proponent and practitioner, I find it deeply relevant. thanks, still paying attention, E.D. Gordon
