Re: Regarding James Smith
I agree with Edwin in that... James IMO, didn't actually break any rules. Had he broken any, I think Jun would have asked him to leave or at least given him a warning, which to my knowledge didn't happen from what i've read on this thread.
However, I do believe that James was disrespectful to a number of people, which i think does call for an apology of some sort.
I don't think it was really bad enough for him to be kicked out of his dojo though. He just seemed like an adolescent who needed to be corrected.. not severely punished.
