Re: Does Budo require a sense of shame?

Dear David,

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my question. The description you gave sounds interesting but the fact that most students don't necessarily know what they need when they are searching for this type of thing how can they know if the teacher has the skills and means(houben?) to help them on their path? Sounds like it could lead to some real weirdness. One student might get lucky but another might end up with some crackpot who has unilaterally declared himself "The One" and gathered a small cadre of sycophants around him to help spread his genius. Since there are no organizations who control or police this type of thing how can a person know what to get into and if it's for them?

Thanks,

Matthew
