Re: "Hidden in Plain Sight" - Shinkage ryu menkyo
This discussion has been making me roll my eyes in disbelief. Interestingly enough, I come across people in Wado ryu who make similar mistakes to those being made here. Holding little or no familiarity with Shindo Yoshin ryu, these amateurish researchers present laughable suppositions based on unreliable sources. What’s even more amazing to me is when they try to debate me after being confronted with documented facts. That these guys have scant factual information concerning SYR or its teachings seems irrelevant. They are so invested in their flawed thinking that they can’t accept the facts when they are staring right at them.
Convoluted rationalization and inept research based on shoddy resources frequently leads to absurd conclusions. If you want to publicly present a controversial supposition, you had better do your homework and do it well. To do otherwise makes someone like me wonder what the possible motivations could be for such behavior.
