Re: Practice without tradition

Seems that there can't be much real respect there in the first place if not bowing would somehow change it.

As for needing a bow-in type ceremony to clear your mind for the class to come, you use it that way because you've conditioned yourself to do so. If it weren't there, you'd find another cue.
